That little 2 position lever on the back of the camera is gathering dust. I wondered what it was, now that I've invested a few days reading and studying about auto focus.

Do real people actually spend time maneuvering the Multi Selector around to chase focus points and then lock them in?

It would seem good for tree sloths and other slow moving targets only. Why did Nikon invest the valuable real estate on the camera for this? A 2nd Fn button would seem much more useful.
