I have a question for the 80D owners out there.

On the SL2 I can double tap the screen to check focus real quick after taking a shot. I tried this on the 80D and the feature is not there.

What do you guys use to check focus after taking a shot with the 80D?

Ive tried diving into all the menus and haven't found anything.

Thanks in advance.

Press the button with the magnifying glass icon (next to the * button) or pinch zoom like on an iPad/iPhone.

Ok. Should of been more specific. Is there a button I can push to zoom into 100% where the camera focused with one push?

Pretty sure you can set the mag button to do that.

if i press the magnifier, it will zoom in first to the center of the image.
i think the OP meant, how zoom to the red AF box location. is that even possible with the magnifier? i guess i can always use my 2 fingers to zoom.

Right, but I think that is adjustable in the custom settings.

I don't have an 80D, but assuming the menu is somewhat similar to the 5D mk IV, you can activate this in the menu under Playback.

On the 5dm4, on the 3rd tab of the menu, you'll see "Magnificatn (apx)". If you select "Actual size (from selected pt)", then it will default to going to 100% magnification of the point where you had established focus.

You can also turn on a little red dot where the actual AF point was established on that same menu/tab - that function is "AF point disp". I disable that though, as I find it really distracting to see the red square when I'm reviewing images.

Thanks for your response. Just went and checked. Unfortunately it's not there like it is on the 5D IV.

I have an 80D and checked as well. The feature you are looking for is NOT there. It is available on my 5DsR, 7D II and 5D III.
