    Guys, MF assist magnification seems not working for video. I am using oly 45 f1.8. For stills magnification is engaging immediately when I touch the lens ring, however when dial set to video, there is no magnification on MF.
    How it is almost impossible to use AF on video due to bad focus hunting, the MF assist is a kind of “required”.
    I am doing something wrong or this is the unfortunate Olympus choice?

    An unfortunate Olympus choice. I hate it too..only option is to switch from Video to M mode, focus, and back again to Video mode...or you can set 2x tele-convertor on a custom fn button; but I find it not enough of a magnification..so I just switch it to M mode.
