Re: With the latest firmware...

Thanks folks - no I have not upgraded the firmware, I'm a computer person in another life, so I don't risk bricking things for no reason, and as at now I've seen nothing in the FW upgrades that I want.
I set the camera to 14x by instinct as soon as I pick it up. I leave it set there anyway, but I like to be sure!
14x is just not enough. Would more recent firmware let me take it in tighter?

1. Hi Louis - nice to hear from you!
2. As someone whose camera 'bricked' on the first update, I was nervous about the latest update, but all went smoothly.
3. The smallest focus box has, so far, happily overcome the tendency of even the 14x box to wander off and grab the background.  I guess it would even let you focus on the dog's eye, if you wanted.
You'll have to try it and see. 
My problem is that I keep pushing the 14x button from habit, and then forgetting how to reset it!
Best wishes
