How are you focussing with the GXR-M?
Sep 25, 2011

I m not particularly fond of the press and hold "OK" screen magnification.

I have taken Ricoh's advice and added "Enlarge Screen" to Fn1. This works differently and more intuitively I find. It enlarges the full screen, Focus Assist works of course, soft pressing the shutter shows full screen again for framing and if you release the shutter the enlarged screen returns to check focus.

I have had more success with Mode1 rather than mode two.

Focussing is easier with wides (naturally) except at a distance but short of infinity focus, but stopping down helps this. On some occasions the focus emphasis lines are non-existent or hard to determine visually.

Perhaps in this instance Mode2 might be easier - pity changing it is buried in the menu.

However like all things learned practice helps.
