Re: Another missed focus?

Focus appears to be on the nose on this one, not the eyes. Is this another example?

When Face Detection doesn't detect an eye it defaults to the center of the face frame or maybe just on the closest plane, which in both cases usually is the nose. People at Olympus know that, but didn't come up with a solution yet. My simple solution would be to just make the camera focus on the upper third's center of the face frame, which usually is between the eyes.
