    I used to be able to magnify the image during manual focus of adapted lenses on my GH2. Now I've forgotten the procedure. I think it involved pressing the thumb-wheel switch. Can someone help me?

    OK, I have it working. According to the manual, there are several ways to do this, but here's what works for me: Set one of the function buttons to "Focus Area Set". When you want to magnify the view with a manual lens, press that function button which should show a rectangle in the view, then press the thumb wheel switch to enlarge the view. Partial press of the shutter release will clear the view back to normal. There may be options involving the touch screen, but I keep it turned off.
