People often mention more and smaller AF points.
I never use them and am a bit confused why anyone would.

Are people actually selecting other than center focus while hand holding the camera ?

Why not? I'm normally using 4 of the 11 points, to avoid/minimize focus&recomposing.

Seems laborious.

It isn't as fast as it could be. However, the K-30 introduces a new method of selecting AF points, using the two command e-dials.
