There's a detailed explanation about 2/3 of the way down this page:
hmm, that's interesting...the 1Dx has the best coverage out to the edges (well, as close as you can get...)...i'm wondering how that compares to FX nikon...
as for whatever someone else said about needing all points to shoot auto racing....i've never heard of a sports photographer shooting higher than the 21 point dynamic, which most people agree doesn't react as quickly as 9 point dynamic, which doesn't react as quickly as a single AF point....the more points, the more time it takes the camera's AF processor to figure out what's going on...sure, it's easier to control and stay on the subject, but the AF performance decreases.......anyway, my original point was that even sometimes on DX i find that i could use AF points closer to the edges, so on FX i think there's really no way i'd be happy....
I used to focus and recompose, but i find that i miss shots that way...not really miss the moment, but miss focus...say you focus and recompose, then you grab a followup shot, well that 2nd shot is going to focus on the background, unless you go back a focus on the subject again....that is unless you use the AF on button, and do the whole "press, release, then recompose" bit....which is just one more step....plus if your subject moves, you gotta do the whole process over again.......that's why i'm starting to love the outside points more...put them where the subject is, or where you want the composition to fall, shoot in AF-C, works very, very well for me lately...only time i cant use it is in a DARK wedding reception, when i'm using AF assist on my flash...gotta shoot AF-S, Center point only for that stuff...
