Re: An example.

Left Info Up/Down gives me three schemes, but doesn't seem to give me an option to set a smaller focus box...
Twist lens / spin dial enables me to set 14X, which I THOUGHT set the camera to use the smallest focus box?

Just seems to be another way of setting the 14x box (slower than my old way too). Unless I have missed something?

I listed the universal way to change AF above somewhere.

Maybe you don't realise that there are two focus box schemes, the usual AF box that appears briefly when AF is happening and can be now set to a small size. Then there's the separate Magnify box which stays on the screen once you access it (hold assigned Magnify button for a second to get back to regular AF box). It is also the Magnify box that is used for touch screen focus/shoot. Also can press OK to get back from Magnify box to usual default AF box.

You can have the small default AF box and a larger say 5x Magnify box and swap between the two if you like at any time.
