Normal, once you get used to it, it's good. It assumes you want to check focus, and it goes instantly to magnified.

It shows a small version of the entire image on the bottom left of the lcd, with a small orange box, indicating the area of the image that is magnified, starting in the center of the image. You can use the rear toggle to move anywhere in the image to check focus.

To get somewhere in the image faster, you can zoom out any amount and move the orange box somewhere, and zoom back in.

To view the whole image, right away, it doesn't matter how long a review time is set (menu, gear, pg 1), take the shot, and press the play button, it goes out of review directly to full image view.

btw, you can activate the lcd and get in and out of the menu without opening the lens, (say when you are learning the camera), by pressing the play button once, which shows the last image shot, then press menu, and move about the menu at will, then hit the power button, lcd turns off (camera is off), lens motor not opening or closing.

If you hit the play button twice, it will extend the lens.
