I would be happy to have 100 focus points. I shoot mainly on tripod and prefer not to move the camera around after I have established my composition. The focus points are often not close enough to the edge of the frame for me, particularly at the bottom of the frame if I want to focus to be on the extreme foreground. The alternative of course is live view, but that is more time consuming.
Being the OP, no you are not high jacking the thread, just expanding the conversation.
