I prefer to use move the AF point over the subject where ever possible

Focus recompose just adds another point where errors can creep in - especially when shooting f/1.4 at close range.

You can go from pin sharp to OOF with focus recompose in that scenario - and then miss that shot.

Exactly my thoughts, and believe me, I've been through the focus - recompose - blur scenario. With a legacy telephoto, not a problem; with the 23 at f1.4 and subject at 3 feet, shift AF point every time.
