Here are some samples from this afternoon. I used pinpoint AF for all 5 of them, where you see the sharpest spot is where the crosshair was aimed. The feature really is nice, not sure how many cameras/brands offer this but it really is useful. Not for action of course, but especially when you are shooting at thin DOF, it really helps you nail focus on exactly what you want. FYI this feature does not work with 3rd party glass, not sure about Oly lenses. Feel free to post your own shots or questions, enjoy.

Slight PP in contrast and color, full size files.

A usual focus square would prove frustrating in this shot.
