    Have a look at this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhFS7GuD5bA
    When I am in magnified (loupe) view, each time I press the shutter button half way it takes me out of the magnified view but in the video, the magnified view remains..how do I turn this feature on? Funnily if I use the touch screen it stays in the magnified view.

    It's in settings. Go to the gear icon, go to the AF/MF category, and you'll find it there. Setting toggles between "mode1" and "mode2" I believe -- "mode2" is what you want.

    tried setting it to mode 2...still does not work, still takes me out of the magnified view when shutter is half pressed.
