Hi Mako.

Two things of difficulties to me, using (practicing using) this AF-ON thing.

First my thumb - dosn't seem to be a grown-up's thumb - becomes a little short to naturally reach the AE/AF-L button on my D90 - maybee just practicing! (Always been told, that I have a lot of thumbs:-) ).

Second - I'm left eyed - and in that possision my nose will not let the thumb operate anyway.

Good Luck sir. We had a wonderful member, Graystar, who also was left eyed. He trained himself to shoot right eye as you are. Indicated it worked very well and ended up becoming natural in the end.  Good Luck

So now I am practicing AF-ON, using right eye and operating tumb - as they say - it's three things.

Hope it's worth that.
