I am just getting up to speed with this newly purchased camera and am noticing that when I push the shutter halfway to pre focus the camera (one shot, center point selected for focus) and recompose, the camera focuses where I intend it to.

However, upon reviewing my shot on the LCD, the little red square which shows you where the focus point was indicates the center of the picture no matter where the real focus point was. I'm probably misunderstanding something here... Can anyone offer me an explanation?

Thanks!

don't recompose...all the AF points are x-hair and it will focus OK using those as well as the center. Center is better but unless you are very good at recomposing, I would skip it.
