    I recently received my GF1 to Oly lens adapter along with my second hand OlyF1.8 lens. I can focus manually using the screen and can see it go sharp won't magnify. Am I doing something wrong?

    Do you push the thumb-wheel? That's how mine switches to magnified view when using adapted lenses.

    You can also use the old G1 method of left button of 4 wheel and then OK. One button push of back dial is easiest. (whoops, that is for MF legacy) Be sure to set "shoot w/o lens" in menu. Its been so long since I've done this but think you need to also set AF + MF to on in menu. Then when you touch focusing ring it should jump to magnified view for Oly lenses.

    What kind of Oly lens mount? 43? OM? PEN-F?

    My 43 Leica lens automatically triggers MF, and goes to magnified view when turning the focus ring, but sometimes you have to turn it quite a bit
