    Is there a way to cancel magnify with a half shutter press? My GX1 does it by default but I never took the time to figure it out on my Oly bodies.

    Thanks.

    yep; half shutter press cancels


    edit: I'm talking E-M5 here.

    Hummm. All three Oly bodies I've owned take another press of the magnify button to zoom out.

    Is there a menu adjustment?

    Is Pinpoint AF what you mean? When you half-press the shutter it zooms in? Or when you manual focus and it cancels the magnification?

    I honestly don't get it :(
     
  5. The E-M5 is the first Oly body (that I am aware of) that gives the option of cancelling the magnified view with a half-press of the shutter button.
