Re: What is Back Button Focus all about?

In addition to other reasons folks have given you, back button focus allows me to use my thumb and keeps my index finger useful for the shutter alone.  I have a tremor in my hands which sometimes results in an inadvertent refocus of a scene.  That never happens when I can use my thumb for the focus.  I find it especially useful when shooting in Servo mode.
