The focus area varies depending on the shooting mode.
Using the Target Finding AF
In A (auto) mode, or when AF area mode (
A73) in j, k, l ,m or M mode 
is set to Target finding AF, the camera focuses in the manner described 
below when you press the shutter-release button halfway.
• The camera detects the main subject and 
focuses on it. When the subject is in focus, 
the focus area glows green. 
If a human face is detected, the camera 
automatically sets focus priority on it.
• If no main subject is detected, the camera 
automatically selects one or more of the 9 
focus areas containing the subject closest to 
the camera. When the subject is in focus, the 
focus areas that are in focus glow green.

Notes About Target Finding AF
• Depending on shooting conditions, the subject that the camera determines to be 
the main subject may vary.
• The main subject may not be detected when using certain White balance or 
Picture Control settings.
• The camera may not detect the main subject appropriately in the following 
situations:
- When the subject is very dark or bright
- When the main subject lacks clearly defined colors
- When the shot is framed so that the main subject is on the edge of the monitor
- When the main subject is composed of a repeating pattern
