I recently took the plunge and ordered a second body so I can have a backup and figured this round I’d go with a 1 series. So I’m coming from a 5D Mark II (20D prior to that) to a 1D Mark IV, one of which I find the outer focus points for the most part useless (more so with moving subjects) and the other I can’t want to try out. So my question is, with a 1 series body do you still focus and recompose using the center point? For sports, do you still use the center point or do use a point that works for the composition you’re after?
I’ve run a few searches on this question and while I’ve found some useful information nothing really addresses what I’m looking for. I’ve had this 'center point focus/recompose' and 'shoot wide/crop (moving subjects) composition later' mentality for so long with the 5d/20d that having a camera that can focus well (and a lot more what seem to be useful focus points) will be something new. Now I’m not saying the 5d mark ii focus sucks, but it has its drawbacks for sure – so please keep this question from spawning a bunch of “the 5D is great, learn how to focus”.
