There are three Canon 5D cameras (the original, the mk II and the mk III). I have the 5D mk II and on that version, you turn AutoFocus points on or off in the viewfinder through the "Playback" menu 2 (fourth menu icon from the left - blue with two dots), second selection: AF point disp. >>> Enable or Disable.

 

Canon has free downloadable owner's manuals on-line if you don't have a hard copy or have the original or mk III.

If you are using AI SERVO af mode then the AF points don't light up either...

 

Don't forget that if you need different languages than English for instruction manuals then Canon Europe makes them available for 10 or more European languages, go to http://software.canon-europe.com
