Re: Overcoming some of the limitations of a D600

If you program the AE-L/AF-L button to do AF-ON instead, it will behave just like the AF-ON button on a D700, D300, etc. The difference is that you can have to choose between AE-L and AF-On where the D700 could do both at the same time as it had 2 buttons.

I never really used the AE-L/AF-L, so I'd never notice the missing button.

Can someone please summarize the differnces in AF-on button operation between the D600 and the D700? (I realize the D600 button is not actually an AF-on button but can be programmed to do the job) What I want to know is why the D600 will not be good for following focus and what the difference in VR operation is when programmed to use the AF-on button rather than the shutter button. (D700, the VR still remains on the shutter button half press but on the D600, focus AND VR will both be on the AF-on button?)

Thanks loads, Ernie Misner
