single point focusing with D7000
I am having difficulty getting my new D7000 into single point centre focus mode. I have read many of the posts here, and watched digitutor to no avail. I shoot mainly wildlife and many times birds or 4-leggers are inside cover, so having the ability to direct the single point of focus to exactly where I want it is critical. It does not seem that any setting that I have found yet provides that capability, and permutations and combinations available with the new "options" are a bit tiresome. Both my D80 and D90 had second level menu options for Single point centre autofocus.
I am unable to find the settings on this unit, and would appreciate any assistance.
I have changed my setting to AF- S and still no luck.
Thanks in advance for your time and patience, I am afraid I am running out of mine

While in AF mode in the middle of the body's AF/M switch is a button. While pressing the button you rotate the sub-command dial to cycle through the auto-focus options until you see the single point focus in the LCD info screen (page 95 of the manual.

Thanks to all! Everyone was 100% accurate, I had used (pushed) the centre of that same dial to get into AF- S mode, but was unaware of the requirement to use the front dial, as well!
I appreciate that each of you took the time to assist!
All the best for this, and all other holiday seasons!
