The review suggests 'disengaging the setting'. I suppose that means that the setting should be changed to 'off', meaning that the shutter will only be released if the camera is in focus. I don't understand how that would help but I will give it a go.

It's better set to off IMHO. If set to "on", the camera will take a shot even if the image is not in focus. When set to "off", the camera will ignore your shutter press until the AF thinks it's in focus.
E-M1ii, Pen-F and too many lenses
