I agree. The only situation for which I find it useful is for a group of birds against the sky using continuous focus mode and with focus points limited to 5. This seems to work fairly well because there is nothing to focus on except the birds.

Ahhh.. So a scene with multiple potential subjects, any of which would be an acceptable focal  point?  I can see how it would be perfect for shooting birds in flight.
