E-M10 iii: Limited operability with 3rd party MF lenses

I took delivery yesterday on a new E-M10 iii. Trying it out today with my two Lensbaby lenses, found that MF Assist options (focus peaking / magnification) do not work with them, although Panasonic MFT lenses seem to work fine. Lesbaby worked OK on a E-M10 Mk 1 so I assumed they would also work fine on Mk 3.

Bummer -- since Lensbabies really need MF assist.! I suppose it may also be an issue with other, more conventional 3rd party MF lenses (e.g., Voigtlander), but I have none to test.

Be warned.
