FZ1000 focus speed: 1 area vs Pinpoint

Hi all,

I've noticed that when set to 1 area autofocus in AFS mode, the focusing is lighting quick, and when set to Pinpoint focus in AFS mode, it takes much longer to focus and feels like a normal compact camera swinging the focus back and forth until it locks.  I haven't found mention of any difference in focus speed in the Advanced user manual or online, but it seems like perhaps DFD focus isn't active in pinpoint mode.  Does anyone else know if this is true?
