AF sensitivity?

I can't locate in the menu or manual any info about setting AF sensitivity. On the E30 and E5 this could be selected as "Small" very useful for focusing on a bird's eye. Is it there or do I have to make do?

Re: AF sensitivity?

On my EP3 you can use the touch to focus set up to provide more sensitivity. I assume this would work on the EM5 too. Basically when the camera is in touch to focus you have the zoom slider on the right. If you slide this up to 10x or 14x you will see the focus box shrink. This then follows through when using the shutter button to focus and will show up in the EVF too. You can then use the buttons or screen to reposition the focus point if you want to. You can also widen the focus box by resetting it to 5x or 7x.

Note: you do not actually need to zoom in for this to work.

Hope that helps.
