#2. "RE: Manual focus point and number of AF points" In response to In response to 1 Wed 30-Jan-13 01:25 PM by ctdrummer

Thanks for the reply, I'm not sure if I described my question clear enough, sorry. What you have explained is true, but I am not using "auto" AF. Focus is done only where I set the single AF point to. I did some tests last night an no matter if I have 39, 11, 9? or 1 point turned on, the single focus point that I select by moving around the selector is used to obtain focus and nothing else.
What is also confusing is that when you look at the back info display rather than the top display, you see the number of AF points move around with the cursor movement. I've read the manual in and out and can't find this explained anywhere. Again, I think I am missing a crucial piece of knowledge here, and I'm sure I will have an Ah! moment, but it has not come yet.
