    I thought I read somewhere that there is a way to digitally zoom in on a subject when focusing manually. I just bought one of those funny Toy Lenses and really need something like that! :biggrin:

    Hi 'dude!

    There's a thread on OM-D EM-5 "focus peaking" here:

    https://www.mu-43.com/f92/focus-peaking-olympus-om-d-e-m5-35442/

    I've assigned it to 'myset 1' and it works well with a Nikon 50mm 1.8. It took a couple of tries, as the instructions on the thread require a thorough reading, but once everything is in place it does a reasonable job.

    For awhile it satisfied my longing for an old style camera with aperture control on the ring around the lens...and now Fuji has upped the ante by announcing the X100s :dash2:.

    A thread on just magnifying the image in manual mode may be found here:

    Regards,

    Jim
