Do you use AF-ON or shutter half-press to focus?

I'm curious about how many folks prefer to use the AF-ON button on the D800 as the sole means of activating auto focus. I didn't do this with my D700 or D7000; the D700 because of the manual AF-C/S switch, and the D7000 because I preferred to use that button for AE lock.

Since the D800 lacks a manual AF-C/S switch, AND has a dedicated AF-ON button, I've been experimenting with it. Takes some getting used to, but I'm liking it.

Am I late to the party on this? For those who do use AF-ON to focus, how to you configure your AE-L button (hold, lock etc.)?
