    Hi folks,

    My trusty GF3 seems to have flipped a setting, and for the life of me I can't make it go back. I used to be able to have a very small but not pinpoint autofocus zone. It showed up as a small rectangle, maybe 3-4mm X 2-3mm. Now my options appear to be pinpoint (which shows up as a +, and magnifies each time I focus) or a giant rectangle (which is disastrously slow with the 20mm pancake, since the camera has to try and figure out where it should actually be focusing).

    I suspect it's some combination of settings that will get me back to my bliss point, but I can't seem to find the right setting. I don't think I upgraded firmware, so I doubt that's it.

    No thoughts? Any hints, even if you're not sure they're right?

    When you are in single area focus mode, you should be able to rotate the back control wheel to change the size of the autofocus point.
