I wish someone would tell me where's no live preview before I went down this route

Any ideas about the MF issue?

I have Soft Key B set to MF assist, and it enables MF assist or changes the zoom level (and Soft Key A backs out of MF assist mode). This works even with no lens attached, so you just need to enable it manually, since it sounds like the lens doesn't communicate to the camera that you're changing zoom and turning on MF assist automatically.
