Manual focus assist on non-Zuiko's
7 months ago

I haven't been a user of the manual focus assist, you know where it automatically enlarges LiveView when you move the focus ring, but have started using it recently on my 35mm macro when having a shot at copying slides using 35mm and an old OM slide copier rig I cobbled together and found it rather useful. The other day I had fitted my Sigma 105mm and found it doesn't work as expected.

Is this usual for non-Zuikos? The 105mm macro is the only non-Zuiko I have, must try a legacy and see if it works as expected.
