hi all, i tried searching but could not find the answer I was looking for

so basically, on my old 5d2, i used center AF only and recompose, and didn't bother to learn selecting AF point with the joy stick

my 6D doesn't have a joy stick, so I didn't try manual AF selection, so again, center AF and recompose

now I just bought the 5d3, and after reading all about how wonderful the outer AF points are, and it's a waste to shoot center AF only, my questions are:

1. do you all still use center focus and recompose? if so, when?
2. I still cant imagine toggling AF selection with joystick can be faster than recompose

could someone please enlighten me?

1) Yes, but only when the centre point is the only point available (shooting with 400mm f/4 + 2x TC). All other lenses I never recompose.

2) For example, if you are wanting to focus on someone's eye that is 2/3 into the frame, if you plan on taking more than one shot and your subject or you is moving around a little bit (changing composition, different poses, subject is walking/running)...by using the correct focus point you just focus and take the shot, whereas if you had to use the centre point and then recompose for every single shot you're wasting a huge amount of time, and potentially missing a lot of great shots too.

also focal plane comes into play if shooting wide open. what u focused on may not be in focus anymore once u recompose

If it moves, shoot it. If it shoots back, get a bigger lens.
