Thanks for the illustration.  It is disappointing about the lack of ability to 
turn touch AF off w/o turning the touch screen totally off.  It would be nice 
to add that with a firmware update, but don't see that happening.

Seems quite unlikely. I'd bet that, once the firmware is baked and the hardware batch made, attention turns fully to the next model in the sequence. These cameras that I've chosen are not their premier models, although their best, to my mind. :-) With their new, FF, S-mount series, that's even more true.

I obviously didn't have the cam anymore to check but still have the manual on 
my phone.  On the plus side, I did get a couple better images inadvertently due 
to schnozz focus.

On a warm day, walking around Manzanita Lake, in Lassen NP, my thin shirt got wet with sweat. The E-PLwhatever camera I was carrying kept taking pix when hanging against me. I turned the touch screen off. Had I known it was doing a pretty good, job, I might have left the screen on. :-)

A nose for hyperfocal distance, Mike
