Just to be sure we are on the same page, I always shoot single point or whatever it is called on D40.

D40 had no way to lock the focus point, none. I have not used a D5100 or read the manual, that is why I asked about the ability to select and lock a focus point.

Does the D5100 allow you to lock the selected focus point? I do not see a locking switch on the back of the camera is why I ask. I had a D40 for a short time and it would focus on my intended subject and before I could complete pushing the shutter, the focus would jump to something behind the subject as your camera appears to have done. Only rarely would it change to something in front, of course there is rarely anything in front of the subject.

Unfortunately, Harry, it doesn't. The OP owns a camera with no AF Fine Tune ability.

If your focus point is "jumping" ANYWHERE, you have some sort of automatic focus mode on. NOT recommended.
