Why set a1 to focus vs release ? Thank you for your time.

Why would you ever want it on release-priority? Am I missing something? If you're using AF, and the AF system thinks you're not in focus, what possible benefit would there be to taking a picture? Is there a situation where you're really in focus, but the AF system disagrees?

To me, release-priority should be renamed "take out of focus pictures" priority. Am I missing something big here? Is there a shooting situation where release-priority is actually useful?
