Why the * for focusing
Jun 7, 2006

I still can figure out why everybody pefers the * for focusing. I tried this a few time and it gave me hand cramps, not to mention that I felt that I was a bit slower while using it.

Help me understand this fuction better as so many of you use it I must be missing something.
BTW I am using a 1DMIIn
