Half press release?

I come from using several Nikon DSLRs, setup for AF-ON only (continuous af, focus gated by AF-ON switch, focus disabled on shutter release button). Now I'm trying to dope out how/if I would use Half Press Release on my GH2.

I have the GH2 set on Q-AF, i.e. focuses when I raise and aim. With Half Press Release I can shoot immediately, however only way I can see to re-compose is using AE/AF Lock button. And I guess I can take focus off of the shutter release button, although not sure it matters with Half Press Release.

Somebody out there educate me, please,
