I think you can use the AF-L to press once & keep it looked instead of constant pressing on the AF-on button ?

Not too good for moving subjects with shallow DoF. You can simply use AF-S, same thing, or just let go of the AF-ON button in AF-C after it focuses.

I've always found the whole AF-ON vs shutter button more of a YMMV deal. However you like/prefer to shoot, go with it. There are pros and cons to each. For me, more pros with AF-ON than the other.
