yeah OVF is great if you have high contrast scenes, backlight and such

what I havent been able to work out from the manual is if it's possible to use the OVF for MF but without zooming when it changes to EVF. I dont think it is

I dont use narrow dof much and I'd prefer to stay in touch with my framing and what's happening in the scene while focusing


ah, i thought that's what you said it was doing. even for narrow dof i'd prefer to focus without zooming in.

I haven't yet figured out how, and don't think it is possible either.

At the automatic 10X magnification in MF I'm finding it easier to use standard focusing, without peaking or the split image. I've never used peaking before and find the glow a little off putting, even on low. Try it on standard instead.

Yet to try MF on fast moving subjects.

I may be misreading your question, but I think that is possible. By default, you have to click the little rear wheel control to get it to zoom in when manually focusing with the OVF. There's a setting you turn on in the menus to get it to automatically zoom in when you manually focus.

It's the MF Focus Check setting in the second setup menu.

The EVF will come up if you click the rear wheel, even if focus check is off
