I have a D5100 and can not lock the focus point. I keep hitting the selector button and moving it. I can lock the focus point on my other Nikon cameras. Can you lock the focus point with the D5200 so it will stay there?

There doesn't seem to be a lock for the D5100 or D5200.
It's the same to my old D40 but then again it only has 3 AF points.

Sorry to tell you, but the lower-end cameras don't have a lock for the focus points, but if I remember right I think if you press the center button it will move it back to the center.

You may be able to do something to set the AE-L/AF-L if you check in the menu. (I don't know I am just making a suggestions as to something you can checkout.)
