Re: Automatic AF point selection. Who uses this?

i haven't ever used the auto point.  i didn't think i would trust 11 points to pick the right one.  i thought trying 5 points in the middle of the viewfinder might be worthwhile.

i don't often take pictures of stuff that moves and forget to try the 5 points...  so, still haven't tried it and i feel guilty.

i think it may have helped me catch one subject.  but that was a sheep framed against the never as far as a background.  his neck is sharp and not the face.  i missed tracking him with center point.  i think 5 point would have helped here...
