    For some reason all of the focus squares are lighting up RED now. Can't get any to go green in any mode.

    What might be causing this?

    Well, not all, just the ones it picks that would normally be green.

    With my older Canon the unused points are black, not red. Those points that were used for the focus are red. Of course in the camera's A-DEP mode all of the points will always be "on", as that is the definition of the A-DEP mode. I didn't know Canon had switched the "on" color to green for the new models.

    Oh... for some reason I was thinking the points used for focusing lit up green. So in live view mode they are green, but when using the viewfinder window they are red?

    I checked the user manual - that's the way it works. Red when using the viewfinder, green with live view.

    Thanks. I was reading through it and didn't come to that part yet. Not sure why I thought I remember seeing green dots in the view finder.
