    When reviewing photos in camera ..D7000 in my case, one can display the selected focus points.
    Is there any way to display that in LR4?

    Manufacturer specific information such as focus point locations, focus distance etc. are contained in a sub-field of the EXIF field called MakersNotes. LR does not parse these fields since the information and the sub fields are unique for each manufacturer's requirements.

    Thanks John. Looks like he's back at sculpting it again. Can't wait! Having a few focus issues with a couple of lenses despite selecting the focus point manually and this would really help understand it.
