I've tried all the AF modes, and the * isn't engaged. When I half press the shutter button the camera beeps and the cicle at the bottom of the view finder illuminates to indicate that AF has focused, but none of the AF points flash to let me know where (or to indicate my manually pre-selected AF point).

It's most odd.

Never mind

I've seen this, but I can't remember exactly why it happens, and what results when it happens. Need to check.
