I just point and focus and hold the shutter at a half press and then recompose...........is that what your getting at ???

As for pr assigning the focus to another button ,the buttons are too small and in the wrong place to do it in one action.

I had a 5DMK2 and had the focus assigned to a a button just below the shutter button at the back of the camera and both buttons could be covered with two fingers of one hand so it became an easy thing to do to press for focus with thumb and hold,recompose and shoot with the other finger,did it for years ,but the G3 is too small for me to do this.

A question was posed to Dalai Lama:
"What is the thing about humanity that surprises you the most?"
His answer was as follows:
"Man" - Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he doesn't enjoy the present,
And as a result he doesn't live in the present or the future. And he

lives as if he's never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.”
