Hi,

I just got the Voigtlander adapter for my Nikon lenses on an ep-2.

I see that if you hit the OK button you can control the manual focus assist magnification to 7x or 10x.

But my question is how do I set up the camera so it will auto magnify for me, like it does with my M43 lenses?

Or is this not possible?

Some call it the arm pit of NYC.
I don't think it is possible (at least not that I know with G1 or E-PL1).

Native lenses have wired focus rings. When you touch that ring, a signal is sent to the camera body to tell it that manual focusing has begun. You don't have that signal with adapted manual lenses.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong...
