    Just purchased an EM5 and cannot figure out how to Zoom in on the VIEWFINDER during play back ,but can Zoom in on the LCD, does the em5 allow Zoom in on playback for the Viewfinder or only LCD?
    Thanks
    Any help would be great.

    As I recall the original E-M5 doesn't allow this. It's one of the improvements I noticed when I went to the E-M1.

    Wjiang, thank you for your reply.
    If this is true its a major oversite , with all the features the Em5 has and not to include the viewfinder magnify option is very disappointing, as the viewfinder has diopter ability and its easier to confirm focus accuracy in a viewfinder , instead of the LCD, because of this. I had most of the g series from g1 to g5 and they all had the magnify option in the viewfinder, had i know that the Em5 did not have this I probably would not have purchased it.
    Can anyone else confirm that the EM5 cannot magnify in the viewfinder?
