That is correct. AF lock simply locks the lens at the initial measured focal length. Your focal length combined with aperture and distance to the subject will define your depth of field. As long as your subject remains within this depth of field range, it should stay in focus when recomposing. On a point and shoot like the g12, this shouldn't be a big problem unless you're doing macro or other close-up work.

Thanks Vipre77, for confirming what I thought was right, (related to what you had explained earlier). Your explanations on the other reply put my mind on the right track, and I am now understanding what my brain couldn't seem to grasp. I think I can finally put this to rest and quit worrying why the focus lock wasn't showing on the subject. Inquiring minds eventually find someone with the answers , and this time it was you !
