I can't enable DMF. Any idea as to why? I've upgraded the lens and body to the newest firmware. I am shooting in one of the PASM modes with selection AF, focus peaking, and no MF Assist Zoom. The manual doesn't say why DMF would be grayed out.

Okay, this is normal, I think it is because that lens doesn't need it since the focus ring is manually coupled (not focus by wire like most NX lenses), I couldn't remember if it was greyed out for DMF.

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but 15 minutes of flipping settings and I can't get it.

Sorry, I led you down that path. I think you can still set the manual focus assist of either zooming in or focus peaking or both. If you have it set to zoom in it should automatically zoom in when you turn the focus ring.

Thanks, Eric.  I've got Focus Peaking on, but I don't find a lot of value in the magnification.  It seems like the focus peaking is less effective and the view is very shaky.  Maybe its one more thing I need to get used to.
