100% magnification in Instant Preview.

I am using the 'Quick Zoom' in my K-5 from 'Playback 1' menu. What setting should I choose equivalent to 100% magnification? Currently I am using x8.

That sounds pretty close. On my K-3, the screen has stated in info that 100% is 8.3X.

If a remember correctly, the 100% zoom on the K30 (same MPX) was about 6.3x-6.7x, anything close to that numbers must give a pretty close view at 100%
