K5iis continuous auto focus question

I usually shoot in center auto focus area are but I'm wondering if when shooting a fast moving subject such as my dog running, would I get better results shooting in auto, auto focus setting? Thanks Bob

You most likely would, as it's usually pretty hard to always keep the center point exactly when you want it. It might make more sense to use the 5-point mode if you normally try to keep your subject in the center of the frame.
