Back button focus set up

Anyone know how to set this up on the PEN E-P5, please. Searched the forum but can't find the info required. Wondering if it's the same procedure as the EM5? I don't have the E-P5 any longer but the new owner has asked and I'm unable to help without having the camera in hand.

Help would be appreciated.

Re: Back button focus set up

Probably too late but...

1. Menu > Cog > A AF/MF > AEL/AFL > S-AF > mode 3

2. Menu > Cog B Button/Dial/Lever > Button Function > Magnify Glass Function > AEL/AFL

This will give your friend BBF with the magnify button on the back of the E-P5. Your friend can choose to set focus to any of the programmable buttons - I just prefer that one.

Thanks very much - I hope Minniesmum reads this as I posted the question on her behalf, having sold the E-P5 to her.
