Manual Focus Live View Nikon D800E
Jul 8, 2012

I use a lot of manual focus lenses on my new D800E in live view. I enlarge the image three times (Maximum enlargement) then I focus to get the image as sharp as I can. Is there any way I can go back to the scene (no enlargement) without pushing the minus enlargement button three times to get back there. I know I can push shutter release and take the photo but I would like to check the composition that I am photographing before I take the photo. It is awkard to push buttons so many times.

I mostly shoot in good light (iso 100-400) and I find live view focusing ok. Maybe it is not so good at higher iso.
I am hoping for a custom function or something I am missing.
I hope I explained this ok.
