Actually in my experience I find that the outer points are pretty

well even in low light but a 1 point AF is kind of ridiculous this
day and time.

My experience is the same. With the 85mm f/1.2 I have had the outer AF points back focusing by a mile in bright outdoor light (1/8000s, f/1.2, ISO100). Yet in the same light the center AF point is always spot on.
