BBF never grew on me. I used to just use whatever I have in the center to focus on where I need to and then crop in post. Now I just crop less often.

I still see case usage, for example if a subject pops in and out of something like a net during volleyball or badminton so I’ll just pre-focus at a spot. The only other time I used it was to focus when I shoot video.

This is a good case for getting focus off the shutter release. Normally, if we wanted to prefocus on a spot, we'd be sitting there holding the shutter half way for long periods of time.
