If you set the AF-ON button for focus you get more flexibility, but it takes a bit of getting used to.

To me the biggest benefit is the duality of it. Set the camera to continuous focus; AF-C and then;

Press AF-ON and hold for continuous focus tracking
Press AF-ON to focus on a specific point, then release it and re-compose

what if the camera is on a tripod (using a remote trigger) and I need continous focus tracking (fe:shooting my kid) ?
