Nikon D7000 AE-L/AF-L button on GRIP
Oct 4, 2011

A quick question for fellow Nikon users using a optional grip on their D7000. I purchased a aftermarket grip (Meike), but when I assign the AE-L/AF-L button in the settings to "AF-ON" the AE-L/AF-L button on the grip still functions as AE-L while the button on the body functions as "AF-ON".

Is this normal? Can someone with a genuine grip please confirm if the AE-L/AF-L button on the grip can be used as AF-ON with the body button? It's damn annoying to assign focus to the AE-L/AF-L button and not be able to use the button on the grip for focus, especially when taking portrait shots (vertically).

Cheers.
