    I don't remember what settings changed on my EOS 40D, but today when I tried to AutoFocus by pressing the shutter half way, I don't see the AF points highlighted. The 17-55mm f2.8 lens is doing auto focus properly. Because I can see the barrel rotation and motor noise. Without this highlighting, I couldn't figure out where the lens is focusing on my frame.

    Any 40D or EOS users please throw some light. Highly appreciate your response.

    Can others edit my Photos:

    If you have your camera set to AI Servo mode it will not show you the locked focus point because it's always changing. It's focusing in real-time.

    Switch it back to One Shot mode and you'll see your AF points again.

    make sure "C.Fn III -4 Superimposed display" is ON, check pg. 159 on your manual.
