G1 one-touch focus assist legacy lenses : SIMPLE !
Sep 7, 2010

Manual focussing in the G1 for leica and other lenses: There is a simple solution
USING ONLY ONE KNOB.

1. set your camera RAW
2. store this as "CUSTOM 1"
3. go to any setting like MPSA, but not "CUST"

4. in the menu: switch to JPEG fine
5. in the menu: switch to "digital zoom 4x".

Now you have a camera that works fine when you are in "CUST" (custom mode)

To see the manual focus enlarged: turn one knob: the big one! switching between
"cust" and "m" gives normal and enlarged image.

Try it! it just becomes a better camera!

This is tmo the best variant to the initial idea from Pete Berry
and it is better working than the work-around we used in this thread:
