"Auto-focus lock on D5100"


Perth, AU
          

Hi All

Have purchased a D5100 as a back-up to my D7000. Is it possible to lock the central focus bracket when using AF-S mode? I regularly "knock" the multi-selector and move the focus point without noticing.

Cheers
Rod

It would appear that this feature is on the D7000 line and above, but not the D5000 and D3000 lines.

Hello Rod
Unfortunately you can´t lock the central focus point in any mode. And I guess, this makes ´ok´ one of our favourite buttons on d5100 (reset to central focus point)
regards
S.
