    I have set the FN1 button on my E-P3 to manual focus. My normal focussing mode is S-AF (MF). Whenever I use the MF button, however, and press it for a second time to revert to AF, I am returned to the straight S-AF mode, which continually re-focusses even when I have not pressed the shutter button, and which does not allow manual focus adjustment. Is there any way to cause it to revert to S-AF (MF), does anyone know?

    I have my EP3 set up the same way, and when I hit Fn1 it toggles between MF and S-AF(MF). Works every time.

    Is S-AF(MF) set in the Super Control Panel? Maybe you have the default setting to S-AF and it reverts to that. I have the super control panel enabled and my focus is set to S-AF(MF).

    Hope this helps.

    Aha - I think that I have it: I needed to turn "full time AF" off. Works well now. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction of the menu settings...
