I hope someone can help me out because I've been pulling my hair out over this issue LOL. I've been trying to set BBF on my EM5 MK2. I've watched all the videos on Youtube and followed them precisely. These are the steps I follow. Menu> Custom Menu> AEL/AFL> S-AF> Mode 3. I then set the FN1 button for that function. I press the shutter button halfway to check and it doesn't focus. So far so good. I press the FN1 button and it focuses. So far so good. I press the shutter button all the way to take the picture and if I've recomposed the camera tries to refocus. NOT GOOD. I've ended up with numerous blurry pictures because of this. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help.

In your super control panel, is the AF mode set to S-AF?

Don't know about your camera but have you disabled focus in shutter button press?

To do that, at least on M10 mk2, go to menu cogs icon,-ok,-AEL/AFL,- S-AF,>right on 4 way, you want mode 3 in box that gives you half press= AEL full press = exposure , AEL/AFL= what ever button you have assigned it to. hope this makes sense
