I know this is APUG so many here are stuck in the past, but I've never met a single (currently) working photographer who complains that is 1D etc has "too many points" that's just silly. If you don't want that many you can cluster them in groups. Still the 1N has the same focusing as my EOS IX which was a crappy APS film camera...
