This option controls whether 
photographs can be taken only 
when the camera is in focus (focus 
priority
) or whenever the shutter-
release button is pressed (release 
priority
) in single-servo AF. To select 
single-servo AF, rotate the focus 
mode selector to S.
Regardless of the option selected, if the in-focus indicator (
I
) is 
displayed focus will lock while the shutter-release button is 
pressed halfway.  Focus lock continues until the shutter is released.
If the subject leaves the selected focus point when dynamic-area 
AF (
I; 0 92) is selected in continuous-servo AF (focus mode C
0 90), the camera will focus based on information from 
surrounding focus points. Choose the number of focus points from 
9, 21, and 51 based on subject movement (note that only active 
focus point is displayed in the viewfinder; the remaining focus 
points provide information to assist focus operation).

surrounding eight focus points. Choose when there is 
time to compose the photograph or when

(e.g., runners or race cars on a track).
