Re: Why I use SAF+M with EM-5

yes sorry, maybe I should have been clearer but I've got in the habit of calling it that.

No, I don't find MF focus assist helps me, I have the body set so that a tap of the Fn2 button gives me a 10X mag smaller focus box and a double tap takes me into focus assist anyway, so its there if I need it

In this case it was as I described, a quick AF for approximate focus then a small turn of the MF ring for accurate final focus on the eye with the EVF is set to high refresh rate

Here's  a little Kingfisher I shot using the same technique on the same walk. Its a long way off and a lot ssmaller so the 100% crop is not so good
