Re: Autofocus point keeps jumping to top left corner - help!

Here’s a very useful trick. If you press the Delete button in normal operating mode, touchscreen turns on and you can move the focus point by touching the screen. So holding the camera and viewing through the EVF, you can move your thumb over the rear screen and position the focus point wherever you want. Pressing the Delete button again will switch touchscreen off and lock the focus point in that position. Use the same procedure to re-locate the focus point back to centre position.

Another advantage of this trick is that the focus point can be clearly seen because it displays in bright orange.
