    I never really noticed but the small focus box comes up in the info screens.
    There has been much talk about the size of the focus box being to big. Dunno, but for some reason the small box works and everything seems to funtion ok.
    Am I missing something? or not?

    Hi Don,

    do you mean the 7x and 10x zoom boxes? these are used as the 'focus patch' if you zoom into them using the OK button. Otherwise the default focus patch is (larger than?) perhaps the 7x zoom box I think.

    Cheers

    Brian,
    That's what I always thought. But if I focus with the regular screen I see the large box for a second...if I switch to the small box screen, the image size stays the same but the box is smaller. I've done it over and over and it works. Maybe OLY did a firmware update to my camera by the AIR Waves......
    Dunno....?
