Hi - this is probably an easy fix i'm just not seeing - the af points on my canon 5d are not displaying (i went into "menu" to make sure it's set as display -on, but still nothing)... and the shutter seems to be very, very sensitive... it's very difficult to focus something and then recompose to make the subject off-center. any help? thanks, b.

Re: canon 5d af points...
The AF point will luminate very briefly when you press the shutter half way. To change the AF points press the Zoom in button + and then use the dial on the top to select the point you want. If you are not able to do this go into the Menu setting and under custom funtions go to No. 13 and set this to 0:Normal.
To get the image to focus and remain focused while you recompose set the shooting mode to 'One Shot' do this be pressing the AW-WB button them turning the top dial to get to 'One Shot'. When in 'one shot' press the button half way recompose whith out lifting your finger and squeeze all the way when you have recomposed.

If the images are recorded on the card but not shown immediatly after the shutter release, press MENU, go with the control dial to the recording menu (the one symbolised with a camera) and press AF, the center knob.
On page 1, the third item controls the instant playback, it can be set to OFF, probably your setup, 2, 5 or 10 seconds.
Try checking C.Fn III, 3: AF point selection method. Yours might still be on option 2.
0: Normal - Works by pressing the AF Point button and then the Multi-controller.
1: Multi-controller direct - Press the multi-controller to directly select an AF point (without first having to press the AF Point button). Pressing the AF button reinstates all AF points for auto AF point selection.
2: Quick Control Dial direct - turn the Quick Control Dial to select AF points. In this mode, AF points will not be displayed on the LCD panel.
Just a wild guess, but in predictive AI focus mode you need a subject in motion for focus to lock and focus adjustment is continous until the exposure is made, in one-shot AF or manual focus mode focus will lock on still subjects. Super nice camera btw.
