14-140 works as I said. I forgot to say about magnified view; the view is magnified. All I have to do is set the focus switch (top side to the left of viewfinder) to MF, then turn the focus ring to get magnified view + focus position slider pop up. I have a choice of 2 magnified views.

FT lens (I am using ZD 70-300). It works just like the 14-140: focus switch to MF + turn the focus ring get magnified view + slider. No IS of course.

Legacy Olympus OM manual focus lens (with OM to 4/3 and 4/3 to m4/3 adapters). It also works, but not automatically. Press and hold the QMenu button for 2 seconds, you'll get a choice of 2 magnified views. Use the control wheel to choose, menu button to pick then focus with the focus ring. The rest is the same as the others.

I did these tests before pressing the record button.

Yes, I get the magnification view before I start recording video, too. I am hoping it is possible to get it while recording the video. Is it?
