It has the AF-On button, so there shouldn't be anything to configure.

Well, presumably if he wants BBF, then he wants to remove focus control from the shutter button. Otherwise what's the point?

That's exactly what I'm after, I want to focus with the back button only and have the shutter button on for taking the actual shot.  I will be using this technique for sports photography; continual focus with the back button and shot with the shutter release.

Thanks
