AF point when reviewing a picture


I now use BBF thanks to the useful advices read here.

I have a problem which I think is not related to BBF:

I move the focus point with the rear controller, then press the BBF button (AEL) to focus on my target, I release the BBF button to lock focus, then I move the camera to reframe (cause sometimes, moving the AF point is not enough: I need to reframe) , and then I take the shot.

When reviewing the picture on the camera, pressing OK should give a 100% view of the part of the picture where the camera focussed.

That's not the case: the magnification shows the part where the AF point was when I pressed the shutter, which is different from the part where the camera focussed before reframing.

This could be misleading when checking focus after the shot.

Is there a workaround?

Thanks for any help. Forgive me if it's not very clear, as english is not my native langage.
