This is great info... I have to be honest, this surprised me! "The new AF point selector control is utterly useless."
It looks like a heck of a cool feature so this is very good to hear before making such an expensive plunge. I'm CONSTANTLY moving focal points manually... obsessively and that feature seemed like it would be really handy. But sticking with the two dials to move them around isn't that big a deal to me.

The problem is simple: every time I press the damn thing to start the focus, the focus point moves to some random place. Every single time! There doesn't appear to be any way for me to press the button without the focus point moving first. So I disabled it.

I use the joystick instead.
