    Hey All,

    Has anyone been able to do manual focusing during video on the OM-D? Am I missing something because I can't seem to find any setting that will allow this.

    I am using the Leica 25 1.4 by the way.

    Not sure if I changed any custom settings to do this, but on mine, pressing the "ok" button (in the middle of the up/down/left/right buttons) brings up a small menu. The 4th option down lets you change focus modes. While there's a dedicated MF option, I actually keep mine on the S-AF[MF] option (4th one, second from the right), which lets me half-press the shutter to focus, then MF during the recording itself.
