I notice when using an AUTO AF it highlights multiple AF points to keep in focus. In manual you can only choose one that I am aware of. Now am I able to choose more then one AF point in manual? Also, I heard that some photographers take multiple shots with different AF points to have multiple areas in focus then put them together? How is this achieved if what I say is true?
--thank you =)
When you say "manual" what do you mean?
M on the mode control dial? If so, that's only for exposure and not AF, and in that case you can chose individual AF points or let the camera chose for you (full auto AF).
If by manual you mean manual focus (M on the lens barrel switch), then AF is disengaged and you can only focus by using the focus ring on the lens.
Finally, if by manual you mean individually selecting the specific AF sensors by use of the Quick Control Dial or the Multi-controller toggle, then no, you can only manually select one AF point at a time.
