I'm an event photographer, and like the 1DMkIII with 19 AF points to
choose from. Problem happens when shooting two people side by side.
Center point not going to help, and I rarely focus then recompose.

+1000.

Tracking is not an issues for me (I don't do it but head & shoulder portraits with fast lenses is a hit and miss experience with the 9 AF points.

That's why we need more. Maybe not 45 (will crowd the smaller xxD viewfinder) but 19 would be ideal - preferably all of them f2.8-sensitive.
