Thanks for both comments, Olga.

I happen to be very comfortable with 1/2 press technique(using center point---then recompose). I've done this for years and for each and every shot that I take. It's an automatic reaction anymore. Is the back button still of benefit to me? Does the Back Button Focus allow for keeping the focus set no matter what else one does; eliminating the necessity of re-1/2 pressing the shutter button?

I'm trying to find a real useful reason for me to use this. Just not sure of it's benefit to me personally.

Bob, you are the only one who can answer that question.
