    I recently switched from sony to canon. I'm still getting used to the new interface. One thing I can't figure out is how to magnify the preview image. It appears that the magnify button is set to Focus Select while in the preview. Is there a way to magnify the preview without going into the playback mode? On my Sony if I hit magnify while the preview was still being displayed, it automatically went into playback mode. I often used this to check focus. Is there a way to set the 5D Mark II to do this?

    The only way I know of magnifying the preview is in live mode. I don't have a Mark series camera, but a 50D. However, if I turn on live mode I can use the magnify tool button to zoom and check focus before shooting.
