"RE: AF-Lock"

The difference between pressing an AF-lock button on a body (or AF-stop button on a lens) and releasing the AF-On bbutton (assuming the shutter button is not being used for AF operation) is in the mechanics of how you carry out the button pressing.

Some camera bodies also allow the AF-On button to be used as an AF-lock button. The AF-L/AE-L button can then be used for only AE-L if you program it that way.

There is also a programmable function button on the front of the camera that can be used for various such uses.

Lots of options. All personal preference.
