I read that the D700 has some sort of facial recognition when set to Auto AF area, don't remember the page of the manual exactly. My question is, when reviewing your picture, is there any way to know where the camera chose to focus, when you shot with Auto AF? I know under 3D tracking, playback shows where exactly the focus point was when the picture was taken, is there any option for that under Auto AF when shooting people?

On a slightly related note, what is the best real world application to take pictures of people walking (such as down a church aisle) while keeping focus on their face and their eyes in particular? Would you suggest the 3D tracking, or the Auto AF with facial recognition?

Thanks for the advice folks!

If you're shooting raw, View NX2 has an option to show focus point(s). I don't know that it works with jpegs.

Bob, thanks for the reply. I am shooting RAW indeed. However, does view NX2 only show the points when I select the points, or also when AF is set to auto select?
