I don't think there is. I have the top front button configured for magnification. That way I can hit it again quickly when I need to go back to normal. I wish there was a way to automatically magnify when the manual focus override is enabled. That is a nice functionality that Fuji has.

Thanks. That's how I've been invoking the focus magnification as well. Just thought I'd check to see if I've been overlooking a setting somewhere.

Same here except that I use Fn1 for image review and Fn2 for 100% zoom.  It can be confusing not being able to reset the zoom by hitting the shutter button, because when reviewing an image and hitting the center OK button the image zooms to 100%, BUT in that case hitting the shutter button actually does something (gets out of image review and zoom both anyway).

Creating art is not enough; it needs to be shared. Sharing demands that you reveal who you are as an artist and how technically inclined you are. To share, you must be, on some level, vulnerable in front of your friends, family, and peers. There's no reward without risk. I suggest being vulnerable and taking that risk. - Jason Bradley
