AF-on button for D4 and D800
May 24, 2012

Let me start by saying I know that as a D4 owner I should know this but I'm feeling tired of reading the manual and too busy to experiment when I know a good person will answer along with some flak.

I track birds by holding down the shutter-release button half way for focus, AF-c mode) which engages the VR system, before capture.

In the past I tried to use the AF-on button for the same action but stopped trying because I have stubby fingers and it seems awkward, plus it didn't engage the VR system until I used the shutter-release button.

Is there a setting for the AF-on button that allows me to push the button once (not hold it) initiate the focus and the VR system and allows triggering the shutter release button for capture?
