LX3 - How to determine AF point from JPG/RAW

I noticed quite a few mis-focused shots from a recent trip and am trying to determine if the problem lies with the AF targets I am selecting (aka user error). Is there a way to determine, after the fact from a RAW or JPG, where the LX3 was autofocusing for a given shot?

On my 20D I can see this information in Canon DPP, and am hoping there is something comparable with the LX3. I did not see such a feature in SilkyPix (did not look hard) nor ACR (looked thoroughly).

Photome...

displays the AF point on LX3 JPEGs. Not sure if it will do it on RW2s, but I don't think so.

Perfect! (Does not appear to work for RAW, though...)

Thanks,

The embedded JPEG in the raw file has its own full EXIF, you can extract it with a number of tools (I use DCRaw's -e option) without having to convert anything and use PhotoME on the extracted file.

John, you're a genius...

thanks for pointing out the embedded JPEG's EXIF. That helps with a completely unrelated issue, that of the G1 not embedding lens data in the RW2 file.

Focus Point can be checked in the camera

Unless I am mistaken, I have tried this and it seems to work,

See page 36 in the UK manual.

Play back image and then press focus button.

Well I'm glad someone thinks I'm useful rather than just an ignoramus and/or an elitist. Ho hum...
