Hi there all!

I recently bought a D7000, moving from a canon eos 40D.

Pleased with it so far I think. However something is baffling me about the camera. I read up on AF-A, AF-S and AF-C modes and understand the functionality no problem.

The issue I am having is with auto focus and subsequent shutter release, when pressing the shutter release button. Let me explain a little more...

I have my AE-L / AF-L button o the back assigned to AF-ON in custom functions. I find this a more convenient way of focusing the camera. So if I am in AF-A mode with metering set to all 39 points AUTO, I sometimes find after pressing the AF-ON button to focus, and releasing it, that the shutter release button does nothing when pressed. All I see is the top lcd display flashing R08 in the bottom right.

However if I keep the AF-ON button held in and then pres the shutter release, it always takes the shot. I don't understand this behaviour, since it will take the majority of the time when I don't have it held in.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? I suspect if I didn't have AF-ON button dedicated I wouldn't be having this issue, but I like the camera set that way.
