Pen Lite E-PL1 Olympus' third Micro Four Thirds; easier to use, cheaper, but not as feature-rich. This could be Olympus' big-seller.

Adjusting size of AF area on E-PL1

Apparently it is possible to adjust the size of the single point, moveable AF area on the E-PL1. Check out this link to Steve's Digicams.

Not sure if it works with other Pens.

I needed this feature! I'll try to activate it.

There's a video demo of the effectiveness too.
