    I'm used to using the magnify focus assist on the E-PM2 for legacy lenses, and from the manual for my new ( to me ) E-P5, it should work the same. However, the mag range on the E-P5 appears to be fixed at 2.5- 7 X. I know there must be a way of changing this to extend to X 14, but so far not been able to work it out. Any ideas ?
     
  2. If you press the magnify button on the back the rear screen displays a small green box, which shows the magnification window. You can then use the scroll wheels to increase magnification down to x14.

    thanks but I did that as I've done on my previous Oly bodies but the mag range was X 2.5- 7. Hadn't got to the bottom of it so decided to do a Full Reset- this has restored the default to X 10 and I can now change the mag to X 14. I'd rather have figured out what I'd done wrong regards settings as to why the range was half what it should have been, but as was unable to a Reset was the only option. Sorted. :)
