"RE: AF-S or AF-C?"

I have assigned my AF-ON to the AE-L/AF-L button and leave my camera in AF-C all of the time. Press the AE-L/AF-L button once and the camera will focus as if it was in AF-S mode. Then you can easly recompose the shot without having the camera refocus. Hold the AE-L/AF-L button down and the camera focuses like its in AF-C mode (because it is).

Takes a little bit to get used to but once you get used to it you will never want to go back to focus on the shutter release button again.
