    Just got my EM1 yesterday and I am still trying to become comfortable with it and get the settings that will work best for me...

    I am having trouble finding an option to have the magnify set to a function button but still have focus peaking work? Right now I have it set with MF Assist to both magnify and focus peak, and when I turn the focus dial I get both. However, when I turn off the magnify option from MF Assist and assign magnify to one of the function buttons, I only get a magnification... no focus peaking when turning the focus ring.

    Also, after hitting the magnify button once to zoom in, and then again to go back out, is there a way to get that green box to go away? With the EM-1 half-pressing the shutter release or any other button got it to go away... the only way I have found is to hit the ok button.

    I couldn't find a thread where people are sharing how they have customized the settings, but would be interested in that...
