Hi All -

I'm sure that I'm just doing something completely stupid but here's the problem I'm having.

I press the shutter release button half-way to focus on my subject. Maintaining the shutter release half-way down, I then reframe my shot for composition purposes but the camera refocuses on wherever the focus point 'lands'. Aggh. How do I make it stop doing this?

I shoot in single point AF mode and the same behavior happens whether I'm in Manual shooting mode or "P" mode.

Please let me know if there are other settings you would need to know in order to properly diagnose what's happening.

TIA,
Rick
