I am thinking about buying one of these as a travel camera. I currently own a D3 and D300 and, with both, I can move the focus point around looking through the viewfinder while toggling a small pad on the rear of the camera. My question is, can I do the same with a D5100 or can I only do it in Live View mode? If it can only be done in LV what sort of focus point challenges does it raise if any?
