Back Focus Customization?
Jan 21, 2009

Please correct me if I didnt quite read the manual or play with the camera menu's enough.

Is it possible to customize the focus button to another button in the back of the camera?

I'd like to focus on a subject but still be able to recompose & still use autofocus. Having the shutter button read the exposure & the back button do the focusing.

Is this the focus lock function? Maybe I need more explanation on this feature.
