    Anyone assigned a Pro lens L-Fn button to activate focusing? Instead of "back button focusing" I guess that would be "lens button focusing".

    Is that possible?

    Looking the manual you can assign AEL/AFL to the lens button. Exactly what happens depends on which of the modes you are using. Maybe I will play with it Monday.

    OK; I use 'Mode 5' on the Lever on my E-M1; that makes the AEL/AFL button do AEL with the lever up, and button-focus with the lever down (MF mode).

    If you want touch-focus in AF mode, you'll need to use one of the other mode options for the lever, at least on the E-M1.

    Can one assign it to be AF-on, like back button AF?
