Not sure you meant this as a reply to me. I had my 5D3 configured so that the DOF preview button was that way, but my hands are not quite big enough to comfortably hold that thing down for servo AF.

Sorry, my reply was aimed at the OP as he seems to be struggling with the camera.

Thanks All. What am I doing wrong if I cannot seem to focus and recompose on single shot?

I also notice (annoyingly) that even with the focus point stays, for the review of review, it still shows red spot in middle and max magniifcation takes it to that point (which is OOF)

Do you have the camera set to do this?

Are you saying that when you press review you get taken to the AF point at 100% automatically? If so this is configurable in the menu. Try a different setting.
