No AF point selection with M (and A) lenses

I decided to try and select a different AF point for use with CIF as using center-only is compositionally limiting.

No matter what I do I cannot change the AF point to anything but center only with my M lens attached. Am I missing something?

Can somebody verify this? It's too bad if that's the case.

Yes, it's true that you cannot choose the autofocus point with non-autofocus lenses. See page 337 of the manual.

BTW, I have both the A and M versions of the 50mm f1.7 lenses. The M produces warmer pictures than the A. I had assumed that the auto WB would result in identical color balance, but that has not been true. I prefer the cooler look of the A.
