I never use continuous unless I'm photographing moving subjects.  Problem solved.

So what do you use continuous for? What is supposed to be used for?

Sports, birds in flight, kids running at the camera.  For critical focus portrait work where I have to nail the eyes I never use it.  Nor do I use it for product shots where I want to have precise control of the focus zone...nor for landscapes, or architecture, for the same reason.

Some people like to use AF-ON only with AF-C so they can lift the AF-ON button to give them AF-S like performance, or hold the button down for AF-C. Dual function wihout changing settings.
