    The GH2 provides something like 20x magnification to assist with focus. It is activated by pressing in the control dial. How is it activated with the G7?

    Thanks for youR assistance.

    I know of at least three ways: When the camera focuses using AF, you can then fine tune AF with the MF ring. When you do this Focus Assist automatically engages. (This can be disabled). Or, when AF is set, you can (while still holding the shutter button) press whatever button you assigned Focus Mode. This engages Focus Assist. (This can be disabled). If you are using MF, Focus Assist pops up when you turn the focus ring. (This can be disabled). 6X is the max magnification. You can pick PIP or fulls screen for the Focus Assist window.
