I hear that a lot, but I don't agree with it. I routinely select between all the available focus points on my 60D, depending on the framing of the shot vs where the moving object, like a train, will be, and all nine points perform very well. And that's using AI servo. In fact, I haven't had an out of focus shot on a moving train yet, and I've used all the focus points at one time or the other.

I've also used different focus points on nitro dragsters down at the finish line where they are coming at me at 200 to 300 mph and the various focus points all worked very well. The center may be the best, but the others aren't shabby.

Just my experience.
