    G1 question re. "Direct AF Area"

    If this is set to "On", is there a quick way of returning the AF point to the centre of the screen ( la D3/D700)?

    Got the 45200 lens today too: early signs v. good.

    Cheers to all, KL

    Now I'm wondering if it's just Nikon (D3/D700/D300) users who are irritated by this inability to reset the AF point on the G1. Or do Canon/Sony/Pentax DSLRs also offer a quick and easy means of returning the AF point to the center of the screen?

    Believe it or not hit the DOF preview/trash can option to reset to the center.

    I can't take full credit....I saw the tip a few months ago over at DPReview and a lot of people had the same "Aha" moment.

    I just had an "aha" moment as well, until I tried it, and it didn't work ??
    Then I found that you have to have the AF point engaged for moving before this feature will work.... Then I had another "aha" moment....

    Thanks Terry, this is great.

    regards
    Santo
