anybody here thinks focus box should be changed to focus dot? this fz250 improvement would make focusing more accurate.

i found out lately that my subject becomes slightly out of focus because the cam focuses on the adjacent object just in front or back of my subject. i pay more attention to my focusing now even when using the smallest focus box. or maybe it is just me....

otherwise, i am very satisfied with my fz200.

Problem with a focus dot is that the contrast-detect auto-focus of the FZ series needs an area within which to compare contrast - just a dot won't do.  If the FZ250 switched to phase-detect AF, now then we'd have something.
