Re: I pulled the plug on DMF

Im still not certain on what the disadvantage to using DMF is unless one accidentally takes pics while focusing and holding the shutter button down.

It's too easy to lose the focus by lifting the finger slightly. So I pop in and out of MF by assigning the C button, since the dedicated focus mode control is much too disruptive. Setting the AEL button to a dedicated focus on demand is also a reasonable option, but it requires two finger operation (one to focus one to shoot) for every AF shot. My setup is more optimized for AF with a convenient switch to manual when needed. But you do have to remember to switch back to AF.
