Actually, it is easily possible. You simply assign focusing to a different button, and prefocus where you want it. Then, when you take the shot, there's no delay. It's actually a lot easier than using MF on a rangefinder. It really doesn't take much figuring out how to do these things, but we're so spoiled by technology that we forget that we can take control ourselves. Custom function 5, setting 1 assigns focus to the * button and exposure lock to the shutter half press. Setting 3 assigns focus to the * button and exposure (not locking) to the shutter button. You'd use 3, if you are shooting in servo and expect the exposure to change during a sequence. I would use 1.

Thanks so much for this advice. This cured my problem with the focus lock.
