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.

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.


My right eye has been injured previously and the vision isn't as good so I don't shoot looking through it, my hands are a bit on the small side. I make it work though, you just have to practice, once you've done it for awhile it becomes second nature.
