Re: 6D - What are the other 10 AF points for?

Thanks,  I already know how to select the AF points.

My question is, what is the point of doing so, when the selected point won't focus on the object selected in the composition?  In other words, why does Canon give the option of selecting the other points, when only the Center point actually works?  Obviously they can be selected for a reason and they must do something, but for what, I don't know.
