Re: Ming Thein found the same thing about AF-C

Hi Rob, go to Custom Setting Menu, Autofocus, AF Activation, AF-On Only. This separates the focus from the shutter button. The shutter button will now meter and shoot, the AF-On button will do the focusing. If you use AF-c the camera will constantly focus while you hold down the button. If you let it up, focus is locked. The shutter button will not refocus the image.

This is why everyone uses this method. You have AF-c and AF-s with one button and you don't have to switch anything. Either hold the AF-On button down (AF-c) or let it up (AF-s).
