Hey! I have a Canon 5D Mark III and I recently had a new Main board put in recently and it wiped all of my settings out so I had to start from scratch and now my problem is this: While shooting I used to be able to use the joystick to choose AF points easily when I half-clicked the shutter button but now I have been needing to hit the AF point selection button on the back (five boxes icon with one solid one in the center) every time I need to change AF points--not change the type of AF focus point but the actual spot that focuses while shooting. It's terribly hindering my shooting speed. I think it might be a settings thing but I can't figure it out, please help.

Under the AF5 menu where do you have the menu item "AF point display during focus" set? I don't have a 5D but with this option set to "selected AF point" with my 1DX and 1DX M2 I can use the controller to select the AF point after a half depress of the shutter release

Who did you have replace the MB? Try another reset of the camera might be in order. If that does not fix it take it back to whoever did the repair. If it wasn't Canon it may not have bee done correctly.

The following steps will enable the joystick for direct AF point selection:
