    Hi guys is there a way in GF-1 to limit part of 23-Area focusing being used by camera, I knew the G2 could do it (the yellow rectangle and + sign) and the other day accidentally I can activate the + sign that "looks like" limit the area focus being used by GF-1.

    This is what I mean...(taken from GX-1)


    I try to activate again but I don't remember how to do it, I try to look it in manual book but not found it. So perhaps anyone could enlighten me?

    the selectable AF box with + sign is activated when you set the GF1 in spot metering, direct area AF mode, not sure if that's what you mean though.

    Well your suggestion did make the + sign appear but what I mean is limiting the zone/group area used by the 23-Area focusing in GF-1,

    in G2 and GX-1 you can reduce the group/zone area used by camera for focusing from the 23-area grid by activating the 23-area focusing icon > press and hold Q.Menu for few second > AF area displayed with white cross appear...then you can select which group / zone in 23-area focusing grid zone to be used using arrow button or dial...like PDAF cross type AF area...?

    Here the option explained in GF-2 ... If Multi-area AF rather than 1-area AF is enabled, then you can select a group of 4, 5 or 6 AF points from 23 different areas, again providing some manual control over what is traditionally a rather hit and miss affair.

    Here the same option implemented in LX-3 which only have 11-area focusing grid...
