Yes, I've come to the same realization.

When the next bird comes by I will try AF.C mode, TAv , and back-button focusing, and see what happens.


David - I think people suggest back button focus without understanding what it does and doesn't do. It will have zero impact on the camera's ability to track a moving subject.

But when I hold down the BBF button and pan around, the cam re-focuses continuously. Doesn't that save some time - I then just press the shutter when the BIF looks good?

The continuous focus behavior is the same whether you use BBF and thumb or half press on the shutter.  Exactly the same.
