If he's in one of the Af modes it will , but not in manual mode .

That's been my whole point all along....

No clue how you got that kind of information. Nothing at all like that in my program, which is ZoomBrowser EX.

I must be missing something REALLY obvious. How did you access that screen?

You're not...CountryBoy was just talking about...who knows. Point is, with AF you can see focus points in-camera...with MF you can't...

But it's easy...even if you take MF shots, just make a note of where you focussed then compare it with what's on your screen...or try AF and then you'll have the info

There should be a popup questionnaire on POTN that stops anyone from starting a new thread with the words: '7d won't focus'... 'blurry pictures'...'my L isn't sharp'...'won't focus in manual'...'40d burst rate' :D

If you answer all the following questions correctly, then your allowed to post the thread:

1. Have you read the manual?
2. Do you have a $5 filter on your lens?
3. Is your shutter speed 1/15 for a 300mm non IS lens?
4. Do you have ALL the focus points active?
5. Multiple choice.. What is a diopter?
6. Do you understand that people spend hours processing pictures before they post them on here? Your's will not look like that!
:D

Man do I hate to be the one denying literally everything...

But that's just not true. I've pressed the display button multiple times while reviewing an image. No focus point confirmation could be found anywhere. Maybe the XS is a different beast all-together?

Maybe I'm just a moron? :confused:

Are you doing it on pictures where you have used MANUAL FOCUS or AUTO FOCUS?

I've tried both. It just doesn't matter. Can't find the info anywhere in-camera. Period. If someone can prove me wrong, PLEASE DO SO!

YMMV but I sold my 50mm 1.4 in preference to the f1.8 version.
