Thanks Fred and Santiclaws. Seems I keep finding little things that I would expect to work a little differently than what it does.

My Canon point and shoot locks exposure with the shutter button -- but then I don't have a back button focus option.

AEL w/Shutter is also customizable, can be Auto, On, or Off.

1. Auto – exposure is locked only when you’re in AF-S mode and focus has been confirmed (also when you’re in AF-A mode and the subject isn’t moving)

2. On – exposure is locked when you press and hold the shutter release button halfway

3. Off – never locks exposure with the shutter release button

(This from the Complete Guide to the Sony A6000.)

The answer to your difficulty is best as described by Fred.
