I am very happy with my d7000. I used to have a D40 before. I like the focusing a lot but there are some ocassions were it doesnt focus the right point and i switch to single point.
Problem is that with single point , when after pressing shutter half way and trying to recompose thecamera keeps focusing and lose the initial subject of interest. how can i program to lock the focus after pressing half shutter?

Shift the focus mode to AF-S, not AF-A (where it's defaulted).
You press the button at the core of the AF/M switch (at the 4 o'clock spot near the lens mount as you face the front of the camera), and while pressing, you rotate the thumb dial on the rear side until you see AF-S in the top LCD.

If indeed the camera is in AF-S mode, then you are likely releasing slightly on the shutter button... You don't need to use the AE/AF button... The shutter release is VERY sensitive. It took me a little while to get used to the new feel. But the way it should be working is the way I originally described.
Perhaps you've got something else set in the MENU options that has somehow overridden this approach?
