E-M1 II -- disable 100% default zoom

When I review an image and roll the zoom wheel one step, the view will jump to a 1:1 (100%) zoom. I find this irritating. I prefer the Panasonic way which just zooms one step instead of all the way. Makes way more sense to me.

Any way I can change this behavior on the E-M1 II? If yes, where?

Thanks in advance. I wasn't able to find anything related on Google.

Or I prefer to set D2/Default playback zoom setting (5th row of D2 menu) to "Recently", which I think is the default.
Strangely this option is completely missing from the manual!

Excellent! Thanks a lot. These are some poor translations. I guess they mean "100%" (or "pixel to pixel") and "last used", respectively.

Or what exactly is the behavior of "recently"?

"Recently" means that after pressing the Magnify button, the camera zooms to last used zoom ratio (as you wrote, actually).

Recently means the same magnification level you were at the last time you used it. Short for "Most recently used setting".
Equally means 100%, pixel to pixel.
(Not the Magnify button - that is a completely different feature.)

I meant the button with a picture of a magnifying glass pressed while you are viewing the photos. Then it enlarges the photo to recently used ratio.

This thread is about rotating the rear wheel while viewing a photo that we have taken.
That setting in the D2 menu has no effect on the Magnify button used when taking a photo.
But I see what you mean - that button is another way to get a magnified view of a viewed photo, but I think the wheel is easier.

I only use the wheel. I can't even find that button.
Thanks to you both. :)

There is no button on EM1, I mixed it up, it is only a picture of the magnifying glass by the wheel (on EM1x) ;-)
