  • fly by wire

    I have a problem coming to terms with fly by wire.
    The focus ring on the 45mm 1.8 seem to be superfluous as it does nothing. Is there something in the menu of my EP5 I need to activate in order to manually focus this lens?
    My other problem is that when using the viewfinder at eye level my nose (and I am no Jimmy Durante) activates the flash button to the extent that I now keep the flash, switched off, in the up position.
    Does anyone else consider the hair trigger flash button a design flaw?
    Cheers

    Because the lens is Focus by Wire it will only Manually Focus after selecting MF or S-AF+MF & a couple of ways of enabling MF is to select it in the SCP (if enabled) by touch (if enabled) or you could program the Record button (or other Fn button) to toggle it ON & OFF. You can still do movie recording from the Mode dial selection when needed.

      What would I do without you Ross!
      First I had to enable SCP and then it was plane sailing.
      I fiddle with ukes but it's not quite the same is it?
      Thanks again.
