Re: But AF-ON is global

Leonard, that is an interesting question. I believe you are mostly correct. I forgot that I recently changed to back button focusing. I just put on my 16-85mm and it seems that it will take a shot, but not always, but it won't autofocus. I watched to see whether the lens moved without pushing the backbutton focus and it did not. It might have fired without pressing the backbutton if it was already in focus, but I am not sure. I thank everybody for helping me out with this. Everything is a learning experience.
