Um, no. My statement was rhetorical, and so was your question. Unless it wasn't.
Excellent work there. I know that must have been a lot of work compiling all the images together to make them side by side.I tried it today....

Small Box Target actually had the best results IMO, the only real misses were when Ernie's head dipped below the target location just above the top thirds line. Animal Tracking AF was slightly better than basic tracking AF, I have found the latter to often get the focus towards the back of the dog instead of the face many times when using it in the past. Although I never saw the box get small enough to register the face or even an eye on Ernie. I'd still use Animal Tracking AF over the Small Box Target through in anything but the most controlled conditions.

I saw this article and was pretty impressed. I was thinking, hey Olympus, how about adding this to our EM1.2 and EM5.3?
Yes. It appears to be a little counter intuitive. If the icon along the top shows a person AND a bird, then Animal AF is ON. Don't be fooled by the menu item in the bottom right that says "Animal AF (or whatever) off ". Selecting that does the opposite of what you want.I am not getting an actual box - tho it works fine on the dog.
Are you guys getting a box with lines for all 4 edges?
@ralf-11 yeah the thing to remember is that that Message is NOT the STATUS, its telling you to press the D-Pad UP button to turn it OFF. They should really rename it to "Turn Animal AF Off".Yes.
