So do I broadly, If I can stand the larger focus area then I just carry on as normal.

If on the other hand I want something more precise, I leave the camera set to histogram for general framing, zooming exposure control etc. but just before firing the shutter, a short press of Fn2 displays the smaller focus area and after release a longer press resumes the histogram display ready for the next shot.

Not ideal perhaps, but the best I've found so far.
