    E-M1 MkII Back Button Focus ?

    Hi All,
    New E-M1 MkII User
    I am slowly trawling my way through the manual
    I have always, well for as long as I can remember, been a back button focus advocate, love it, first thing I set on any new body.
    I can't seem to find a way to set any of the buttons on the back of the body to be AF start ?
    Or am I shit out of luck


    Thanks in Advance

    Cheers, Mark

    Will this Help Mark http://seldomscenephotography.com/20...1ii-revisited/ you make find more help on the first two blue links
    I don't use BBF on My EM1 only my Canon cameras, as I could not work it out 5 years ago when I bought my E-M1 so I did not bother for shooting macro.

    I shoot with Canon and Olympus Cameras.. And My iPhone SE
    And sometimes a Little Old Panasonic DMC-TZ7

    Mark, Mary Annes link seems to show me how to set BB focus. So I may learn can you tell me why you find BBF so handy? Is it more convenient than the sliding ring sleeve on the lens?
    regards marty

    Thanks MAry Anne, I worked it out and it is quite easy once you know how

    MArty, I have used Back Button for focus like forever now
    You can focus and meter different areas, you can prefocus on a spot and not have to worry about focus changing when you half press the shutter button to meter, you can leave the camera in continuous AF mode and have both Continuous and Single AF, press teh button and release for single, press and hold for continuous
