Separate focus and exposure (Pekka Potka)

Hi,

Thanks for trying out the C-AF, it's really helpful.
I just wondered if you are using "the Pekka Potka-method", cited here:

Autofocus is mapped into Fn1. In S-AF mode my thumb focuses and focusing stays put unless I need to focus and push the Fn1 button again. In C-AF (+Tr) mode focusing is continuous as long as I keep pushing Fn1 button. It is VERY important to separate focusing and exposure, it is THE key to succesfull shooting without unnecessary focus hunt with CDAF. Changing between S-AF and C-AF can be done via OK button and Arrow pad on the back side of camera while holding camera on eye.
