Re: Back button focus "outdated" due to new ML tech ?

Interesting article, but I don't see why a mirrorless camera would change my way of focussing.

I use BBF all the time, because I want to tell the camera "Now focus on this!".

With the AF-Lock approach its like letting the camera do whatever she wants to and then tell her "Now please stop focussing..."; that seems a bit too complicated for me...

I almost always stay in AF-C; with BBF I don't have to switch. Only complain with the Zs is the missing 3D tracking as it used to be with the DSLRs (activated through the AF-ON button, very easy...) - I wouldn't need the joystick if I could always track my object that easily.

BTW I use AE-Lock with the half shutter press, as the Z lacks a dedicated button - but I don't need that very often....

The Zs still don't have enough buttons to put custom functions on...
