Wish D50 did not have 5 focus points & maybe lens support

Every time I need to check whether I am using the central focus point - otherwise I get into a situation like my trip to yosemite when many pics were out of focus due to accidentally using the other focus point (was new to the camera back then). I focus & recompose anyway as the central focus point is the most sensitive (works in both horizontal & vertical directions unlike the other 4 focus sensors which work in only one directions).

Guess I need to fiddle & try to find if there is a way to disable the other 4 focus sensors.

About lens support - it would have stopped me from lusting for 85mm f/1.4 :-). I enjoy my 35 f/2 & 50 f/1.8 - but once you taste the primes you keep on lusting for more :-).
