    I have an Olympus E-m1 and I have 1 button assigned to reset the position of the AF point to the center, problem is that I like to use the smaller AF points but whenever I press the button to reset the position it goes back to the regular size AF point. Is there a way to keep the smaller AF point when I reset the position or will I have to change it manually if I want to keep using the smaller AF?

    Thanks

    Yes, you can do it, I have mine set like that. Here are my notes to myself:

    - A AF/MF
    -- Set Home: Change from all areas to one small central point.

    Now when you set the button to Set Home, it will show the small area.

    Istm that if you turn off the camera with the AF point in the home position, then pressing the assigned button will not toggle it again until you manually choose another AF grid.
    Annoying, so I also have one the arrow buttons assigned to the AF selector.

    True, it's a minor annoyance for me too.
