    Hello folks,

    After a couple of failed attempts on Ebay – one not turning up at all followed by a 5N that turned up as a 5 - I'm not a proud owner of a 5R :) 

    As I'm mainly going to be using my old Minolta/Olympus/M42 lenses, I've been playing with Focus Peaking – I'm just wondering if there's a quick way of turning it on and off, as it's a bit of a pain going through the menu system to get to it. Is it possible to assign a function for it? I've looked around but can't figure out any way of doing it.

    I usually lave the setup menu set on Focus peaking level so you can get to it fast. With the touch screen it is pretty quick. Still 3 or 4 taps but you don't have to scroll through all the items in the menu

    Ah yes, that makes sense - thanks, just tried that and it's not too bad to get there.
