For me it makes no difference. Interestingly, I when in auto area af, it will focus well outside of the focus array. When taking portraits, for example, it will focus on the eyes of the subject, even when they are out of the focus areas range. certain focus points will light up in the array, but the focus will be on the eyes. This is extremely important to me at weddings because my D700, which also does this, has allowed me greater compositional freedom since I don't have to worry about focus points.

So even if the subject is out of the focus point area it's still tracked? interesting.

I'm usually in Manual. I only put the camera in AF-A when I hand the camera to someone who doesn't know anything about photography (wife, family, etc) - or in case I had too many Tequila shots
