We've been down this road before. It's a personal preference. Suffice to say that there are two methods (Center + Recompose or Choose AF Pt) outlined in this discussion and both work fine in most cases. The argument for moving focus points around instead of recomposing with the center point is sound on paper but not very practical in most cases of shooting. (IMHO) Nuero's compromise where he starts out with his AF pt off center might save some effort, I'm not sure. I guess once you get accustomed to moving the points around with the controls it may get easier but in general I don't think it really matters much until you get into the 2" DOF extremes like is mentioned in the linked article. If I'm on a tripod in a studio, I can take the time to do anything I want including just tweaking the focus manually.
Personally, I have always used the "center and recompose" method when I shoot "in the field" (not on a tripod in a studio). I naturally keep in mind the DOF I have to work with and compensate when necessary. To me the "center and recompose" method is a lot simpler than futzing with AF pts all the time and missing the shot. The shot is what I am concentrating on, not the AF pt position. Sometimes, center and recompose isn't even fast enough. And if you change cameras, you have to start over on learning to change the points again. Ugh. And many cameras don't have a selectable AF point feature so you're back to center and recompose anyway.
