Thank you, Stan, for your helpful clarifications and information on focus and re-composition. In some experiments I conducted today after writing my last comment above, I also determined that using AF-ON was very helpful under the circumstances. Additionally, it appears from my testing that there in no need to lock focus when using it, because, unless I'm mistaken, when you release AF-ON the focus is automatically locked where it was when you released it and that locked focus cannot be overridden by pressing the shutter release button halfway, regardless of the AF Mode or AF-Area Mode you are using, because merely assigning AF-ON to a button disables AF via the shutter release button. If I am mistaken on this point, please do let me know. That said, what I am hoping you can still do by pressing the shutter release halfway, when AF-ON is assigned to a button, is get VR to activate; from my testing I couldn't tell whether VR was activating under these circumstances or not, and I'd naturally be interested in your thoughts here...
