How do you program an Fn button to give you a small AF point on an OM-D?

    Hi guys, I was just reading about this on another thread...and I'm wondering...how do you program an Fn button to give you a small AF point? Is that AF point more precise? I can only find "Magnify" as an option, but that's not it, is it?

    Thanks,
    T

    My E-M5 has Fn2 button assigned to magnify and I think that this is all that is available. However the annoying factor is that this has to be activated every time the camera is switched on or woken up which is a real pain.

    Ah, thanks...I was afraid of that haha...they really were SO close to getting the Fn options right, but kinda tripped at the curb...(ie: MySets you have to hold the button to keep it active, etc)...the implementation kind of falls short of perfect, doesn't it?

    Guess I'll make due with what I have...still 26 more AF points than my 5D Mark II...that's gotta count for something haha.

    Yeah I bookmarked that page for the spot metering tip alone. :)

    I think (haven't set it up yet) that the paragraph after the instructions on how to tie the spot meter to the af point is also critical to the process. I'll try it later. If you beat me to it, share with the group?

    Will do! I've been a bit busy (work and I just booked my flights to Switzerland this summer...woohoo!!!), but if I get around to it, I'll definitely post it up. :)
