Sorry for the thread necromancy, but in my opinion (and, more importantly, experience) cameras with fewer AF points SUCK for wedding photography, but that's because I don't recompose. I think the centre AF/recomposing malarky is a total cop-out...we're photographers, and should be able to use our cameras to their full potential. If you can't quickly select from the 40-something AF points on a Canon 1 series body, you don't deserve to own it (IMHO).
Granted, it's harder (and arguably requires more skill and dexterity) to select specific AF points quickly, but these peripheral AF points ain't there for decoration (unless it's a camera like the 50D...read below) and when you do get the desired AF point, the results are astounding.
I did a wedding yesterday using my 50D as a backup, and having reviewed the pictures very few shots taken using the outer AF points on the 50D are in focus. Thankfully I got the bulk of shots with the 1Ds2 so no harm done, but I'm questioning the value of my 50D and am seriously considering selling it after it's poor performance yesterday. Who cares about IQ when the darn thing can't focus????
Or to paraphrase;
It's loads better to own a 1 series camera, if you do you can use all your focus points. If you focus recompose with your 1d - consider yourself substandard for not learning how to use it as well as I did.
If you don't own a 1 series camera you might have problems using the outer focus points - so you might need to focus recompose - consider yourself substandard for not buying the camera I chose.
What was the point of this post, is it the launch of a comedy photography career? Or was it just an exercise in making yourself feel superior?
