    Hi,

    For some reason I cannot display the ZOOM FRAME on E-M5.

    I assigned the function to Fn1 button. I can see on the SCP that it is so assigned. Yet, when I press Fn1, nothing happens!

    May there be a setting which blocks this function?

    Firmware version is 1.2

    Thanks,
    Moshe

    push once for focus area, and a second time to enlarge the frame.

    Also, you kind of have to push and release quickly. The buttons are a little mushy, which make me prone to push them hard. For some reason, on my OMD, that actually negates the button press. For f1, I just push it quickly and softly.

    Thanks D@ne and WT21,

    In the mean time I did a full reset and the ZOOM FRAME reappeared. I don't know which setting blocked it. But it's still elusive, I can't control it. I'll play until I'll get the gist of it.

    It definitely takes some getting used to...I found it to be not very intuitive...especially getting rid of the zoom frame after you have activated it (you have to hold the button down, not just press it).

    Does the zoom in feature only work on the LCD? I don't see it in the EVF. Wondering if I;m doing something wrong.

    Works in both.
