Well, I'm glad to see it's not just me. That said, it's disappointing that this hasn't been addressed in a FW update by now. The current smallest box flat out fails to nail focus in close-up work. Oly AF has always been so accurate. It's as though the box wantonly disregards what it's aimed at. Even if I engage magnify (at 14x) the (auto) focus still falls outside of the reticle. Had to resort to MF to get a mantis' eye in focus today - regardless of lens. Same issue with trying to grab the edge of a flower petal - no accuracy. Any of my past Oly's Single Point AF would have nailed these simple targets. Side effect of the new sensor array?

So, now I wonder: do I send this E-M1II back and downgrade to the E-M5II (or even E-M10II) or roll the dice that Oly will fix this....
