With this AF set-up, keep your shutter button half pressed so the lens continuously adjusts focus until you actually fully depress the shutter. Focus and re-compose is accomplished by pushing and holding down the AFL button after subject focus is achieved.

Did you not say to assign the AE/L to focus only ( this is my set up as well ), but then to hold the shutter button for focus ?

Hi Peyton,

With the AF-L option set, once you achieve focus and press the AF-L button. it will hold that focus until you finish pressing the shutter button. It works great once you get used to it.
