Re: Blasted OM-D focusing

Means taking the camera from your eye.  I absolutely detest touch screens.  But you would get exactly the same problem - when the camera cannot find much of strong contrast where you have pointed it, it looks elsewhere.  All cameras do this, but the E-M5 does it enough for it to be a notable trait.

Why don't you try the touch screen focus & shoot? Tap the dog's face on the touchscreen and voila! If that doesn't work then something's defective.

My E-PL5 has no trouble finding my cat's eyes when in face detection mode.
