Hi, I just got a D7000 and have had a bit of trouble getting perfectly focused shots everytime. I have set up the camera to show me the selected focus point ( once the shot is completed) to try and see what was going on- though even when it looks like the focus point selected is on correct part of subject it still doesnt look sharp ( sometimes.. not always).
My question is.. when I use the single focus point to focus on subject and then recompose shot - the focus point location on the subject it shows as being used ( when checking data after shot) isnt the actual part of the subject I focused on - it is where the focus point I selected ended up being after I recomposed. Is that correct? So consequently.. it wont be able to tell me what part of the subject I focus on ( when using the focus and recompose method of shooting)?

Just want to make sure I'm understanding how it works
