Had my D300 set to focus from the AF button on the back, not the shutter release. Need help setting that same feature up on the D 600; focus only when the AF button on the back is pushed. I think it is a combination of settings in the Custom Setting Menu but the manual is not clear.

The D600 does not have an AF-ON button like the D300, but you can assign that function to the AE-L/AF-L button if you want to. I don't have my D600 with me right now, but look for "Assign AE-L/AF-L Button" in the Custom Settings. I think it is f4. Set it to AF-ON.
