Hi all,

I suspect that I know the answwer to this, but as I'm not at home and one of you may already have tested it, I thought I'd ask..

It's possible in the setup menu to restrict the selectable af points from 39 to 11 - this is a handy feature for my style of shooting (though I am disappointed that I can't choose the 11 points that I'd like to have active).

My question is this:

If the camera is configured to allow 11 user-selectable points, but you are in 9 point/21 point/39 point af tracking modes, do the other points remain active, or have you crippled the tracking mode (as only the 11 are available)?

My money is on the points staying active for af-tracking, but I've been wrong before - thoughts?
