I have been using AF Nikon cameras since 1990, and have always gotten good focus accuracy using the center focus point and recomposing as needed. I found that multi-point focus with 5 points was helpful when using a tripod. But I can't figure out what I am supposed to do with 39 focus points. The camera never uses the correct spot, for example focusing on a nose instead of an eye for a portrait. With the possible exception of tracking moving objects, what good is it? Am I missing something here?
