    Hi everyone,

    Today I decided to use the 12-50 zoom lens and I noticed something annoying. For some reason, when I change the focal length the camera doesn't display the change. If I want to check what the focal length is, I have to turn some dial (for instance the dial that changes the aperture) and then it displays a lot of information, including the focal length.

    Have I changed some setting by mistake that is making the camera behave like that or is it a problem with lens and/or camera?

    I think you need to toggle with the info button to change what is displayed on the screen. Sometimes when I press the info button when framing to take a picture all the numbers disappear. If I press again, other information is displayed. I just toggle thru until I see what I need. It's actually a nice option because sometimes when framing I like to see the picture without the other distractions.

    Just checked and this is for the LCD only. On the EVF my focal length is always displayed.
