    Not sure if this is a bug or not, but here we go....

    • EM1 - menu set to magnify on MF.

    • Setting MF by hitting the AF button on top and selecting MF then turn the lens works fine - I get the magnified view.

    However:

    • Olympus 12mm f2.0 lens - pull the ring back to go in to MF, the LCD shows MF but the view does not magnify.

    Am I missing something here? I still have to force the camera in to MF mode (either custom button or using the AF button-->MF) in order to get this to work.

    I know I can assign a button to magnify, but that uses up that button. Shouldn't this just work by default?

    Any ideas?

    Just FYI the Panasonic GH4 is exactly the same way.....
