    Hi all, just taken delivery of my new GX8. A very nice camera it is, but I do have a couple of questions please.

    When in playback mode, is there a way to program a button to do one touch magnification (rather than having to use the scroll wheel). I've found that 8x appears to be around 100% view ?

    Secondly, if we have to use the scroll wheel, any chance of re-mapping it to the front dial rather than the rear one (feels more comfortable for me), and have the rear dial skip through images ?

  2. You can double tap the screen for a quick zoom in, or you can do a two finger spread (similar to smartphones) to zoom in less or more. I have not seen any way to customize the dials for Playback, they can be for Shooting functions.
