    Has anyone tried the E-PM1 with legacy lenses? I'm wondering if it's a real PITA without having a dedicated magnification button to help focus, or if there's a way to customize something to make it reasonably easy.

    If it's not too difficult, it might be a good second body to use with legacy lenses (with IBIS) and when you want a super-compact camera.

    You can set the record button to zoom in. Works great, as long as you didn't want that button for something else. On the PL1 I had the buttons set to MF/AF toggle, zoom, and record. (So only one was customized.) On the PM1 I have no record button or MF/AF toggle. That's okay because S-AF/MF is improved, AF doesn't trigger on adapted lenses anymore, and because Live Control Panel is okay for switching AF mode IME.
