I’ve been using and really enjoying the Olympus E-P2 for the last month, and lately with the addition of the Canon and Nikon adapter rings the camera has become even better. The only problem I’ve had with using the Canon and Nikon lenses on the E-P2 is the lack of a way to ensure proper focus when composing my shots. While lately I’ve gone to the extent of even sitting down and reading the manual to figure out a better way of handling this and I’ve found it.
To achieve great focus with this camera with manual focus lenses you can get the LCD or the EVF to move into zoom mode where you get close up look at subject of your shot. This can be achieved by a few simple buttons on the back of the camera -
- Push the Info button until the green box comes up
- Push the “Ok” button this should move the screen to Zoom mode
- If you want to zoom in further you can turn the dial on the back to change zoom amounts
Hope this helps you out, leave a comment below let me know if you’ve picked up a micro 4/3 camera or plan to in the future.
