Just in case you may overlooked this but did you enable manual focus assist in menu? Also it needs to be in single photo drive mode.

Drive mode and MF assist settings are irrelevant for using the focus magnifier. At least when using adapted manual lenses (may be different for lenses with electronic contacts like the Loxia line).

When using a dumb adapter and having "Release w/o lens" enabled, you should be able to set any custom button to "Focus Settings" or "Focus magnifier" (both will work) and use this button to zoom in. I would also set "Focus magnif. time" to "No limit", so the camera does not quit the zoomed-in view by itself.
