Said it before and I will say it again...if you need 51 AF points to get a shot in focus, you should really get a new profession or hobby. I dont use a 5D, but every pro I know who does gets razor sharp pics all the time because they know what they are doing.
shoot a wedding with nine-point AF. it works, but out of the 1500 pictures you take in a day, a good handful will be misses and "every pro" knows that sometimes playing your luck like that could mean the difference between getting the shot you want and getting the shot that the camera resolves before the shutter is released. it's not a need, it just part of the tool that helps you do your work more efficiently and consistently. if this wasn't the case, we'd all be using 20D's because i've seen decent wedding work done with those. all lack of skill by the photographers if they want a better camera body right?
