Sorry to hijack this thread.

Wanna ask the seasoned Olympus shooters about the AF confirmation in the Pen F.

Why doesn't the AF box (circled green ) turn green when AF is acquired?

Instead there is a green dot (circled red)to tell us that AF is acquired.

Is there a setting I missed out?

Btw the AF box is black so it's difficult to see it. But it doesn't stay green even though AF is acquired

Hey bro. I believe your "AF Area Pointer" is set to Off. Try turning on the green box will be back

Hi bro..

The AF area pointer is set to on.

The green box will appear only a short while (maybe less than a sec) to indicate AF is acquired and then back to black, leaving only the AF confirmation green dot at the top right corner.

I am just back to using Olympus after a few years. Dun remember the AF confirmation to be working like that.

Seems Pen F exhibits this. While EPL9 doesn't.

I found EM1 Mark II has a setting On1 and On2 and off. On1 is what you saw. While On2 is what most you had used in Olympus usually, Pen F is On1 mode or Off, there's no On2 selection. So i guess will have to stick with it.

Welcome back!
