Hi Eric

I agree absolutely that the S/W is very useful. I was surprised to find that the focus point seemed to be slightly off the intended point in a lot of shots, but that could be due to the heat of the moment.

When I get a moment, I'm going to do some testing using a tripod & test shot to look at the accuracy of the point shown by the software - or it could be the accuracy of the EVF focussing square in relation to the actual point focussed? I've often wondered about the latter!

As there are often complaints about mis-focussed shots, this S/W could be very helpful in casting more light on the situation.

Many thanks again

Phil

As I mentioned above I believe the focus point is the centre of the focus square with Single Point focus - not necessarily where the camera actually focusses.
