    Hi All,

    I've just got a G5 with the twin lens kit, so far very impressed with my first MFT camera.

    I have a quick query on the pinpoint AF, is it only available in certain modes? It seems to be greyed out for me in all modes except C1/C2.

    It's probably something really simple but the manual doesn't seem to go into this AF mode in any detail.

    What am i doing wrong?

    I noticed that it only works when you have your focus mode set to Auto Focus Single (AFS)

    I absolutely love pinpoint AF for product photography. It is also amazing how often the AF nails it. And seeing the zoomed view for focus confirmation is just sweet. Great feature (don't use on moving subjects).
