The D600 has one thumb button, D800 has two...

Do you set the AE-L/AF-L button to focus? If so, how do you lock exposure...or don't you ever do that? I find exposure lock is important because Nikon's matrix metering does not work as reliably as Canon's evaluative metering, so I'm stuck with point metering...which requires meter lock.

I use the button for exposure lock, and the shutter for focus lock. I don't see why using a button for focus lock would give you anymore accurate focus lock than using a half shutter press.

You might be forgetting that on the D800, the exposure lock and AF-ON functions have their own, separate buttons.
