Re: What is Back Button Focus all about?

I'll just mention this.  IMO the design of the two upper-right backside buttons (the AF-point & "back button AF" button) is tremendously improved in the newer Rebel bodies (T5i/T4i) over the T2i.  I have both the T2i & T5i at the moment.

The T2i buttons are spongy and recessed. A PITA to use IMO, and frustratingly regressed from even-older bodies (XSi).

The T5i buttons are prominent and have a good pop when pressed.  Huge improvement IMO.

Note that I'm just talking about the 2 upper-right buttons. Almost every other button feels worse on the T5i IMO, but that's another subject...
