I normally shoot with centre spot small most of the time.Just recently I've been taking lots of wild flowers and have been moving the centre spot around a lot ie to the top in protrait to focus on petels while keeping some of the stem in the picture.
What I like is to return to the centre or HP you just push the focus point selection button and then OK and your back at the centre.

...and have been moving the centre spot around a lot...

I really appreciate this feature, too, and it really helped swing my decision to move to an E3.

I've only just started moving the focus point around and didn't know about that incantation to reset to the middle. Thanks very much for pointing it out *yes

Cheers,

No problem

I think you can also set any point as your home point.I have not tried this yet.

Yes, I'm barely scratching the surface of the customisation available on the E-3 as there are so many possible settings. I wish Olympus had supplied a more comprehensive and clear manual on CD-ROM like they did with the E-1. I find the small printed manual that came in the box very dense and difficult to navigate :confused::mad:

I keep looking on the Olympus UK web site for a manual in PDF format but so far nothing has appeared :(
