Pen-F, accessing Multi-Function menu.

Sorted

Accessing the MF Menu on my E-M1 Mkll is a doddle, hold down the the Fn2 button and turn a front/rear dial...bingo.

On my newly acquired Pen-F the instructions are, page 76.....

1 Press and hold the button to which the multi-function
has been assigned and rotate the front dial or rear
dial.
• The menus are displayed.
2 Keep rotating the dial to choose a function.
• Release the button when the desired function is
selected.


I rotate and hold the highlight/shadow lever below the mode dial, rotate a front/rear dial....zilch...no menu.
All I get is the highlight/shadow adjuster.

In Cog>D>Multi Function Settings...all boxes are ticked

Updated firmware to 3.1

Is it me or is the camera defective?

Anyone....it's being collected on Wednesday.

Neither I nor the dealer can believe it's a fault.....HELP.

I have posted the same question on DPR and someone there has the same problem.

Re: Pen-F, accessing Multi-Function menu.

I can't believe it's a fault with a specific camera. Sounds like a user or firmware problem. Personally, I've never found the multi function feature very usable (but then again I only shoot raw).

In any case, I thought you'd already returned your Pen?

I had, after only just getting a 12-100 I thought it was a touch of extravagance just a bit toooooo far.
SWIMBO thought I was an idiot as it was such a little beauty so I reordered one, delivered Sunday.
Could I please ask that you check yours when time arrises.
