My D7000 just arrived and after charging the battery, I am getting to do my first shots around the yard. On my D300 bodies, I have three settings on the side of the body: CF, S, M and typically use S unless I have moving animals. When in the S mode, I toggle my focus points around to put one on the animal's eye or a specific spot in the scene. On the D7000, the S is missing with only AF and M available. Also, I usually have my D300 bodies set to spot focus unless shooting faster moving animals or birds.

I am now trying to figure out how to set this camera up to do something similar. I will probably figure it out soon, but seem to be missing a setting or two. Any quick advice would be appreciated.
