Are there pros and or cons to using the AE/AF L button on the back of the cam to AF on ?? I believe doing this deactivates the focusing from the half shutter press for focusing. I think this is known as back button focusing. Iv e also heard there is a way to configure this that the back button ( AF L ) works in single servo mode then have your half shutter release work in continous mode ???? On another site several are of the opinion that this back focus button method produces more "keepers" in better focus . it this is possible it seems to be a quick way to focus static objects then swith to moving objects quickly .

Im not sure but it almost seems like more control compared to using AF-A
