On the E-M1 II have you been aware there is a shortcut to changing the AF Assist, Focus Peaking settings with the Info key?

Just move the AF ring to MF (on Pro lenses) & rotate the ring enough to trigger MF adjustment then press the Info key & up will show the settings. Adjust each setting with the up/down buttons or rear dial & move to the next option with the left/right buttons or the front dial. It is in the Version 3 manual (FW 3.0) on page 124, but easily missed as it is rather brief in detail.
Note! This is also possible if Menu A1, AF+MF is set to ON as well. Move the the focus ring & then press the Info key for the same result.
Thanks to Clare at Olympus UK for the tip (World Photography Day).

I read the new manual but completely missed this new feature. Thanks for telling us.
