    I can't find a way to make MF assist lower than 5x magnification. Not a major problem, but is there a way to get 2x or 3x? I've read the manual and did some search online, but no happiness.

    Thanks in advance.

    While you're in AF assist mode, click the right (front) wheel to the right...it'll magnify up to 7x, 10x, and 14x. :) If you want to magnify less, simply click the wheel left.

    IIRC, 5x is the minimum.

    Oops...sorry, I'm sick as a dog and misread that. Yeah, I don't think it goes below 5x. Sorry for my previous (likely useless) post!

    Been there and can fully sympathize. Hope you feel better soon.
