Direct select AF point on 70D
7 months ago

I use back button focus and have changed the custom settings to allow me to directly select the AF point using the multi-controller. On the 60D, pressing the Set button in the centre of the multi-controller will always take me back to the centre focus point. However, on the 70D this is not the case. I can select any of the other points but the only way to jump to the centre is by first pushing the AF selection button that illuminates all the selection points in red.

Is this the expected behaviour, in which case why would Canon change this? Or is there something wrong with my multi-controller and set button?
