Thanks folks - no I have not upgraded the firmware, I'm a computer person in another life, so I don't risk bricking things for no reason, and as at now I've seen nothing in the FW upgrades that I want.
I set the camera to 14x by instinct as soon as I pick it up. I leave it set there anyway, but I like to be sure!
14x is just not enough. Would more recent firmware let me take it in tighter?

What are you trying to focus on that 14x isn't enough? Don't forget, you need contrast inside of that 14x box in order for CDAF to work.  I've had no issue with either the 14x or the small AF box nailing the focus on the eye of an animal each and every time.  Are you trying to track something?  And if so, is it moving very fast?
