On my DMC-G1, when in MF, you can press the left arrow on the four-way controller then press the center button to activate live view magnification.

With an adapted lens, though, you may first need to activate « shoot without lens » (found in the Custom menu on the G1).

Got the adapter today and tried your method with a Pentax Takumar 24mm lens.

It worked very well, thanks again for the advice.
