Re: I want more points in the middle

I think (yes think) that this would help my keeper ratio.

Many times I try to hold the center point right on the nose of an
aircraft....this is difficult in practice. With more points around
it it might work better.

The 5D has those 6 invisible points around the center point. I use mine on model aircraft and can't really tell a difference between it and my 20D as far as focus tracking goes (yes, I have it enabled).
