Ross Murphy: "Meanwhile, DPReview's Andy Westlake expressed his disappointment that there's no option to directly select AF points, as is possible with cameras like the Nikon D7100 and Olympus OM-D E-M1."
would be a huge let down if that is true, surely a HUGE oversight ?????
I don't see the problem. So you have to press a button to bring up the option to change focal point...
If it did have a joystick that could adjust the focal point without pressing another button, it could be accidentally knocked on a small camera. You would then have people complaining about that :-)
