Yes, it does, and that was one reason for me to replace my otherwise excellent D90. Got my D7000 yesterday and tried to check whether it would be on-focus with my 24-70 f2.8 (D90 was about 2'' short at 5 ft, would focus on the tip of the nose rather than the eyes...)

But I could not get the D7000 to use a single focus point! Set to AF-S, single point, it would still blip red on two, three or more points, making the LensAlign trick (using an old ruler at 45 degrees) useless.

Any thoughts?
