Possible bug OMD EM5 using S-AF+MF

Sometimes you really need a focus ring and that's why we are provided with one: automatic does not work in all cases.

There's also this fabulous option to zoom in automagically when you touch the ring.
This works quite nice with a few points to note from my side

[OMD EM5 V1.1; options: magnification enabled, shutter does not disable magnification]

  • I haven't yet found a possiblity to choose magnification during manual focus. I admit I haven't used all buttons and wheels since my motives were moving. Well...

  • I also haven't yet found a fast possibility to hop in and out of magnification view.

  • finally: when you select the focus point by touch the automagic magnification is not activated. Since choosing the focus point by touch display is very fast and intuitive I'd propose Olympus should fix this point.

Same could be true for plain MF setting. I haven't checked this yet. Well, I bought a camera with well-performing AF for a reason, didn't I?
