I think the Olympus menu is clear and functional

You can change the size of the focus rectangle

Assuming SCP is set on LCD, press button on side of EVF.

You will see a highlighted icon lower LHS. Tap it to cycle through the options (3 from memory).

One of them looks like a pointing finger over a rectangle; that's the one you want.

Tap anywhere on the screen to place your focus rectangle; Now on the RHS, a green bar appears; move up to 14x gives you the smallest focus rectangle.

Unfortunately it does not stick if you switch the camera off. It can be adjusted from 5x to 14x.

I agree with TEB re. speed of button push and menu structure, on the back of 30 years of shooting pro cameras AND a computer background. Love the camera, do not love the menu system. I want to know how any setting affects any other!

Nonetheless, sold the NEX-7 and am sticking with this for a while.
