Hi all, I am using back button focusing on my d7100 and just noticed the custom option (pg 236 in the manual) which seems to make it possible to just half-press the shutter button once to lock in exposure. So seems to me that, shooting a sunset for example, you could read your exposure setting from a more neutral tone in the sky by half=pressing the shutter button once, then recompose on a brighter part of the scene without keeping your finger on the shutter button the whole time. Do I have that right? And has anyone used the option in combination with back button focusing?
