Just played around with it, and it appears like you’d have to do the same trick. I set the exposure button to MF, and you can quickly press and hold that and scroll through the different focus modes. Pretty cool actually, and I don’t think it’s all that clunky, but I suppose it’s not as easy as simply pressing the button over and over again to scroll through. That does not appear available, if that’s how you’re saying the e-m1 iii works.
Yeah, the em1 just keeps the menu up without having to hold the button + scroll. You also get exposure options to control with the front dial. The ‘m5 will just bounce between MF and AF, so it takes a little brain training. But yeah, you found the trick and used before.

Some northern lights in Minnesota last night. Not as cracked up as it was supposed to be, but hours after I called it quits, it blew up. More red than I’ve gotten before to be fair. They were out again tonight, and so was I. I haven’t processed them yet, and also not all that great, but I’m sure at some point tonight while I’m asleep they’ll be going nuts again!
