Focus Peaking shortcut to settings with Info key on E-M1 II

On the E-M1 II (& E-M1 Mk I) have you been aware there is a shortcut to changing the AF Assist, Focus Peaking settings with the Info key?

Just move the AF ring to MF (on Pro lenses) & rotate the ring enough to trigger MF adjustment then press the Info key & up will show the settings. Adjust each setting with the up/down buttons or rear dial & move to the next option with the left/right buttons or the front dial. It is in the Version 3 manual (FW 3.0) on page 124, but easily missed as it is rather brief in detail.
Note! This is also possible if Menu A1, AF+MF is set to ON as well. Move the the focus ring & then press the Info key for the same result.
Thanks to Clare at Olympus UK for the tip (World Photography Day).

Just that it won't work on fully manual lenses ad the camera don't know there is a lens attach or not. you need to assign a button for it.

If you have Fn2 as default with Multifunction then that has Focus Peaking as one of the functions available & if selected then the Info key will show the options the same (in the E-M1 II at FW 3.1). I just tried it with the 9mm Fisheye Bodycap lens.

Re: Focus Peaking shortcut to settings with Info key on E-M1 II

I appreciate it. Cause I didn't know that info button can do that as I have already customize my buttons for something else. Useful when I have my Samyang and Laowa mounted

Thanks.

I discovered this accidentally a couple of days ago. Didn't notice it in the manual.

Apparently this has been a feature all along & also with the E-M1 (first model) as well. I just tried it too.
It's also something I had noticed either.
