Re: Depth of Field Preview with Live View?

Now I would find this very useful, but it doesn't work for me. I can zoom in with live view to (say) 5x, but when I press the Depth of View button, the display reverts to 1x.

Can anyone confirm that it works?


DOF button reverts to 1x as well for me on my E-3. DOF looks to default to the standard information display rather than the enlarged display.
