    E-P1 dedicated AF button
    It shouldn't be this hard. Or maybe it should, to keep us paid so well.

    You have to enable the secret handshake
    The menu like two gear wheels for the tricky techie stuff is disabled by default.

    Press the menu button.
    Down on the D-keys to the spanner icon
    Right, then
    Down 4 times to two gearwheels menu display
    Right once it'll say "OFF"
    Down once to turn it to "ON"
    Press OK button

    Now the menu, press left and up
    In the gearwheel menu click right to "A"
    Then down to "B" Button/dial
    (nearly there!)
    Down twice to AEL/AFL
    right to mode
    in S-AF mode click right
    scroll through to mode 3
    AEL now does single AF
    Shutter half press AEL
    press OK

    Finally, if you want, the Fn button for autofocus.

    Down 6 times
    AEL ->
    AFL <- Fn
    should be OFF by default.
    Click right and set it to ON.
    press OK.

    Now finally you have S-AF on the Fn button.

    Press Menu twice to get out of the menu.

    Whew !!

    I think most people are not going to find it if the gearwheel menu is turned OFF by default.

    This is for people who think the BMW iDrive is too easy to navigate ...
