    I know you are supposed to be able to magnify the image in the view finder when you press in the thumb dial on the Panasonic GH2 when using legacy lenses but that option is not working for me so I'm wondering if I need to change a setting to get it work.
    Thanks in advance,

    Clicking the thumb wheel on my GH2 using a MF-only lens toggles between exposure compensation and MF assist mode. Once I"m in MF assist mode, I can then move the wheel left or right to change the magnification power. If it's not doing it for you, you might want to check your settings in the Custom menu and make sure MF Assist is on.

    I can't seem to get it to toggle off of the exposure compensation mode. What are you doing to get it off off the AE mode?
    Thanks so much for your help
