7D Back button focus?
Dec 27, 2012

What are the advantages of using the back button to focus on the 7D? When people talk about "back button focussing", does that just mean that the AF-ON button is set via C.FnIV.1 to "Metering and AF start"? If so, then it seems to do exactly what pressing the shutter half-way does, so I don't see the point of using the button in the back... So I'm probably missing something.
