Was wondering why one would use AF-S, when AF-C focuses continually, addressing slight variations in mvt that AF-S doesn't, so why use AF-S, just leave it on AF-C, I now there are other considerations like speed etc that would affect which AF to use, but speaking purely on focus, surely t here's nothing wrong with just leaving AF on AF-C? or am I missing something(s)?

Assign the AEL/AFL button as AF ON, and leave the camera in AF-C mode permanently. For continuous AF keep the AF ON button pressed. For focus and re-compose press the AF ON to focus, then release it and recompose. The shutter button does not activate AF at all.
