You can already program it for BBF

I just personally find it uncomfortable after a while. But if you want to set it up, go to the custom menu > controls, and you can set the joystick push to "AF-On".

See my post here from when the Z's first came out:

I had been thinking about making a custom solution for a while which involved making a little joystick over the joystick...maybe it's time to just do it...

In my situation, having the joystick act as BBF would never work. I have it set to bring the focus point back to center. Even that is extremely frustrating. I wind up pushing it numerous times before getting it to center the focus point.

My problem is neuropathy in my hands. Pushing buttons is akin to anyone else doing the same thing while wearing relatively heavy gloves. I have difficulty finding buttons without looking for them. Then, I move the joystick sideways before I can push it straight in.

I know I'm in the minority with my condition, but I'm certainly not alone with this issue. The tiny joy sticks on cameras are frustrating, at best.
