Aim the center of the Area AF frame over a zone with good contrast, then 
press the shutter button halfway (p.44). If you are too close to the

status indicator <

Multiple AF points light up simultaneously.
All those AF points have achieved focus. As long as the AF point 
covering the desired subject lights up, you can take the picture.

(The AF status indicator <
e> is displayed, but the focus confirmation 
light <o> does not light up.) You can take sharp pictures of a moving 
subject.
Note that focus lock (p.67) will not work in this case.
 
Pressing the shutter button halfway does not focus the subject.
If the focus mode switch on the lens is set to <MF> (Manual Focus), set it 
to <AF> (Autofocus).
FAQ

A> mode makes the colors look more impressive in nature, outdoor, 
and sunset scenes. If you did not obtain the desired color tones, change the 
shooting mode to <d/s/f/a>, set a Picture Style other than <D>, 
then shoot again.
