N00b: Why won't my D7000 auto focus anymore?
Dec 4, 2010

I know I'm doing something stupid.... I got my D7000 a week ago. When I fired it up, it was set to auto. When I half depressed the shutter it would use one of the 39 focal points and PRESTO. Nice shot.

Now, despite still being set to auto (and from what I can tell, set to auto focus everywhere else on the camera/lens) it will only focus on the "square" in the middle of the viewfinder.

I have to manually focus for every shot! So frustrating as a n00b.

As I'm a newbie, I plan to use the auto setting for awhile until I get my feet more wet, so I need it to be able to auto focus nicely for a bit yet.

Anyone?

Thanks!

J.
