Re: 5N DMF Problem

This is what I do on the 5N when using DMF. Menu > Setup. I set MF assist to 2 seconds (there is also a 5sec or unlimited). Set MF Assist to enabled. Enable DMF for AF/MF Select in the Camera settings.

Press shutter half way to autofocus then turn focus ring as desired wait 2sec (still holding shutter halfway) for the DMF to zoom back out from magnification. Recompose while holding shutter then press shutter all the way.

On the 5N. In Manual focus mode turning the focus ring will magnify without half pressing shutter.
