Manny and Jan, please elaborate as you both say the same thing.

Once you've locked focus, surely that's it. Recomposing won't alter the focus distance unless you're tracking moving objects.

It's a feature of the 1 series that spot metering is locked to the active AF point and I thought most modern, high end Canon's would be similar.
Perhaps a firmware update ?
