Re: D300 Autofocus techniques - please share yours

I know a lot of people swear by the AF-ON button, but personally I find it a waste. I prefer to use the shutter half press for AF. I find it more annoying to have to press two separate buttons to get both AF and VR to work than just one button.

As for the idea that half pressing the shutter for an extended period is more difficult than pressing the AF-ON button for an extended period, that seems like a silly argument.

Most importantly though, I have the AF/AE lock button programmed to disable flash when pressed, so my thumb is often busy with that task while I am shooting.
