How many out there use the * button to focus?

To each his own

This is my experience:

In AI-servo mode, I half press the shutter, focusing starts and continues as long as the shutter is half-pressed. I let go, try to focus and recompose. When I press the shutter again, lens RE-focuses.

But if I use * in AI-servo mode, once I let go of the * button, I can focus and recompose, the lens does NOT refocus.

So, if one does a lot of focus and recomposing for static subjects (scenary etc), this can come in useful.
