OMD Setup for manual focus lens

Having recently bought my OMD I'm now at the love hate stage

  • love the potential of this little gem

  • hate the complexity and counter intuitive menus

I know I'll eventually get the hang of the "Olympus way" but I'm a touch and feel learner and this machine is far from intuitive.

Could you help me with the following:

USING non m43 lenses - Just got my Pentax Kmount adapter.

  • How do I set things so I've got a magnified image when manually focusing?

  • How to I tell IBIS the focal length of the foreign lens?

With Auto ISO it always seems to default to the top of the range. Can I tell it to choose the lowest ISO possible for a good image and only go high if it really has to.

Yours in confusion
