When the camera is set to AF-continuous, it will focus as long as you are pressing the AF-ON button. Press and hold the af-on, take a few shots, still hold the af-on, take a few more shots. Release the af-on to stop focusing.

>Also, how do I use this AF-ON button for shooting an HDR sequence?

For HDR, all you want to be changing is the shutter speed. So you just want to focus once by pressing and releasing the af-on button, then take all your frames using that one focus.

The cool thing about the af-on button in AF-C mode is that you get to do both af-c and af-s with no setting changes by pressing and holding the af-on button to get continuous focus then press and release to mimic af-Single focus mode.
