Hello

Is it possible that half press on the shutter button will lock only the focus and not the exposure also?

Now half press, lock focus + exposure so it difficult to recompose because the exposure is not right.

I know that i have small button AE-L but its not comfortable...

I know that other brands let the user to decide if half press will lock focus or also exposure.

I don't think you can do it exactly as you are asking, but there is another way to achieve the same results. In the menu, set the AF-L button to initiate and lock the focus (you have to have the S,C,M focus switch set to M). Once focus is achieved, recompose and shoot. The metering will take place as you have press the shutter.
