So how the hell are you supposed to pick the point that you want? If this is is normal behavior, why call this single-focus point mode if the camera will just do whatever the heck it wants

You're absolutely right GroWeb in decribing how the current AF-C S functions. I tested my D800E AF focus (AF-S and AF-C S) and I entirely agree with what you've observed. My D800E behaved the same way. Well, it's just the way the new AF-C S works -- unfortunately, some people may not agree on this peculiarity.

Nikkor 18-200mm f3.5-5.6 VR2, 50mm f1.4D, 85mm f1.8G, 24-70mm f2.8, 70-200mm f2.8 VR2
Sigma 150mm f2.8
Tokina 11-16mm f2.8
Nikon Speedlights 2-SB600, SB800, and SU800 (commander)

I never use continuous unless I'm photographing moving subjects.  Problem solved.
