The AF-ON only setting, combined with AF-C, is popular on this forum. It gives you the best of both worlds without changing settings. If you want AF-S functionality press and release the AF-ON button. If you want AF-C functionality press and hold the AF-ON button. It makes focus and compose easier, and it gives you more control over focusing. The AF-ON button is conveniently placed for your thumb, so it is easy to use while shooting rapidly or when shooting slowly and carefully. You will find many threads about AF-ON only going back at least several years.

Robin, thanks for explaining that in plain, ordinary English.

regards, David
