    I haven't found a way to assign a button to manually magnify the screen on the GM5 in shooting mode to check critical focus when using the 12-32 lens.

    I know Manual focusing mode does it but using the touch screen to change focus is really clunky, so I'd rather use a quick button to quickly magnify/enlarge the screen to check if AF is spot on or not. Any ideas? :confused-53:

    I haven't found a way either, but you can still AF in MF mode - there's a touch button to do that. As long as you stay in MF mode, you can AF and check the result in magnified view.

    I still need to read the downloadable GM1 manual because I have a bunch of questions on mine. I wish I could use the useless red record button to magnify...or at least the function button. Pushing left on the D-pad with my right thumb while holding the camera and a big adapted lens with my left hand is not comfortable.
