Hi all,

I currently have a G7 and would like to change the focus direction on the native lumix lenses I have. Is this possible in the body? Or other lumix bodies?

Thanks in advance.

No, I can’t find the instructions.
Had a look through the menu, no joy there either. I must of imagined it. I was sure I kept changing the direction when I was using it with a 45 macro... I remember it clearly because it was annoying he’ll outta me!
Mabe it was my M5ii Olympus? I must be loosing it...

Thanks for the efforts. Maybe it is possible with Olympus bodies but not with Lumix..?
Cannot find anything myself.

As of the publication of the G9, G90/95, and GX9 manuals, changing focus direction isn't something Panasonic supports. Potentially it was added in a later firmware for the most recent bodies, but that seems unlikely. I find this odd as it's a trivial feature to implement, Panasonic does support changing the direction of exposure dials, and competitors like Fuji allow changing focus direction on all of their bodies.

Thanks for the replies. It would be a nice feature for Panasonic to implement in the future. I hope they will.
