That button is a toggle between multiple pic view and single pic view. When viewing a single pic, you push the button to view smaller pics (up to nine per screen), then use the four way controller to navigate to a particular pic. Then a push of the AV button will show the pic as a large single.

Why are you pressing the + button in the first place, if you read the owners manual when viewing a picture on the LCD screen you press the + and it will zoom in.

That's normal behavior when you use the zoom feature on Sony dSLR models (immediately goes to maximum magnification). Then, you can zoom back out for less magnifcation if desired.

I actually like it that way (zooms in all the way with one button press), since that makes it easier to check for obvious problems (focus, etc. that may not be noticeable with less magnification). I use it relatively often (zoom in and scroll around the image to see various portions of it when magnified). With the higher resolution LCD on the A700, this feature is even more useful (to me, anyway).
