Re: D800 Single-point AF vs. Normal AF

Thank you ALL for your much-appreciated very-intelligent thoughts

Just to be clear... We're saying the rule of thumb for best focus:

Stick to AF-S (S) and use AF-Lock to Recompose?

Do you think ANY self-respecting pro (lol) ever shoots with just AUTO (51 pt) AF at say weddings or events or portraits, etc (Non-sports, etc)?

Also, how do you get around really fast changes shot-to-shot? Keep the center selected at all times?

@JacquesC How much "Real" difference do you (and others) find between AF-S and AF-C?
