If you're ready to let the camera decide where in the scene it wants to focus, wouldn't it be even nicer if the camera picked out where the top, bottom, and sides would be for an ideal picture? Or when everything looks just right and everybody has a perfect smile? In truth, autofocus doesn't always focus where you'd prefer, and there is a time delay involved. Maybe we no longer have to coat our own plates anymore but it makes me feel like I'm doing something in the creative process if I have a few decisions to make. I use a seperate meter too.
