I understand that the F80/N80 has this piece of technology known as Lock-On. However, I'm not sure how I can test whether this thing works.

I set my camera to Dynamic AF continuous mode and trained my focus on an object some distance away. I then got someone to walk across and momentarily block the target object. The camera focused on the person instead of the object almost instantly.. I don't think Lock-On is supposed to work like this right?

Can anyone enlighten me on how Lock-On works? Is it a sort of predictive focusing technology that works just before the shutter opens? How do I test / verify that it's working on my camera properly?

Thanks in advance. BTW, this is my first post! Nice to meet you all.
