    I had thought I could preview (ala live view) my shots and zoom in prior to shooting to aid in focusing with manual lenses- Am I mistaken or ?
    Thanks in advance, Ken.

    On the G1 you can achieve a preview of exposure/DoF/shutter speed by pressing the Delete button, followed by Display.

    If using a manual lens:
    To zoom in for focus press the AF Mode button, followed by Display.

    If using an AF lens this can also be achieved by:
    in MF mode: turning the focus ring
    AF-S mode: turning the focus ring while half-pressing the shutter button

    AFAIK, in AF-C mode the zoom focus preview is not available.

    Hope this helps.

    You nailed it !

    Thank you very much, that is EXACTLY what I was looking for.

    Sincerely,
    Ken

    p.s.I have been grinding through the owner's manual and having no success whatsoever, is it cleverly hidden or...?

    Great - I'm glad that my description was clear enough!

    Regarding the User Manual... yes, it's certainly not the best out there (though probably not the worst either...):rolleyes:
