Bought a FZ60 several days ago. Like the camera except for one thing: I have the focus set to SPOT FOCUS and every time I turn camera off, it looses the spot focus setting. It goes back to the next larger focus area. Am I overlooking something or is this a bug in the camera?

Panasonic provides both 23-area and 1-area focus modes - they could add a spot-focus mode [which is essentially 1-area focus with the smallest area size] to meet this need and pad their camera specs! Personally, I use the small spot 90% of the time and having to press FOCUS and dial down is a pain that too often results in missed shots.
