I've been working a couple of focusing issues on other forums, and I need some help with using the BB Focus button.

I like using it a lot, and use it all the time for high school sports.

Lately, I've just been using it all the time.

During a fashion shoot the other day at school, I had some focusing issues.

Several Nikonians have mentioned that I might not understand how this button works.

Can you please help me with this?

If I am in AF-S mode, Single Point AF and set the Release Mode to "Focus plus Release", the shutter does not always fire when I recompose. So, I started holding the AF-ON button while I recompose. The shutter now always fires, but the focus sometimes changes.

If I want to use the center AF point for more accuracy, please explain how I would use the AF-ON button and what mode to set the Release too.
