    Ricoh GXR - Removing the "target focus shift" icon

    Using the GXR, when I press the ADJ lever, a row of 5 icons appears, the first 4 of which I can assign in the "Key Custom Options" menu. The 5th icon corresponds to a "target focus shift" function, which I absolutely never use, but very often select by accident. Is there any way to remove this 5th icon from the screen - I could not find one.

    Apparently nobody is troubled by that, or nobody knows the answer, or my explanation wasn't clear…*:-)

    I have the same behavior and didn't see a way to fix it.

    No way to change this setting far as I'm aware.

    (I had not used it before, but then I was doing some macro work with the A12 50 camera unit, camera on a copystand. Being able to retarget where the AF spot was in the frame without moving the camera or subject turned out to be invaluable.)

    Thanks Godfrey.

    Yes, I realize that this setting may be useful, but it would be nice if its display was optional… For some reason, very often, when I want to change another setting for which I have chosen to display an icon in the EVF (triggered by the ADJ lever), it is the "target focus shift" icon which is selected when I press ADJ, although so far I have never used it (voluntarily, at least…
