Panasonic GM5 focus box.

I just bought a brand new GM5 from a store for no other reason than it was at a very silly price. (I normally use the Oly M1/1 and Oly lenses.)

When I half press to focus, a large box appears with a magnified view and when focus is achieved, the box goes away. I do not like it at all, enough to make me get rid of the camera. It does not happen in CAF just in SAF. I have tried everything to get rid of this enlarged magnified view and I have researched on the internet, and it seems not possible. I have turned off anything remotely connected like focus assistance and the like, but all to no avail.

Question, can I get rid of this large focus box. If not, does anyone want a new boxed GM5 with 12-32mm at a bargain price. Buying it was a silly idea, I should have just bought a second Oly body, maybe an M10/2
