I think the answer to this is "no", but it may actually be available and I'm just not figuring out how to toggle the setting.
The X-Pro 1 has a wealth of AF points — 49 in EVF mode and 25 in OVF mode. But the process to select them is cumbersome:
- Press the
AFbutton, located to the bottom left of the back of camera body, away from your hands if you are holding the lens so as to adjust aperture.
- Move the point with the four-way controller
AFagain to confirm.
Even if the AF button were more conveniently located, I'd prefer to not press it at all. Three of the four buttons of the four-way controller normally do nothing in shooting mode, and the
up button puts the camera into macro mode, which I really don't want to be able to do so conveniently anyway (among other things, that switches the OVF to EVF until you turn it off, which requires more clicks than turning it on). So what I want is for the four-way controller to just always be focus point selection.
This was the default on older Pentax cameras, and on newer ones, it's an option whether you want the four-way controller buttons to do this or serve some other function by default. So, I'm very used to it and like it. Clearly, Fujifilm could easily do this with a firmware update, but before I make that request I wanted to make sure it (or some other shortcut) wasn't implemented somehow already.
