    I've just tried out my first manual adapted lens but can't get MF Assist to work. I have MF assist set, I'm in MF but nothing happens. Can someone please enlighten me on what I'm missing?

    This will not work automatically with the manual lenses because they do not have the electronics needed to tell the camera the focus ring is moving.

    You can use the magnify button, or assign the magnify function to a button.

    Thanks. After a little more fiddling, I got the magnify button sorted.
