Just asking but what’s the point of the back button AF over using the shutter button? Must be a good reason as so many cameras seem to have it but I’ve never known the reason.

I also use the FN2 button for focussing, it really works for me, especially for my insect photography. I read that focussing this way, the camera focuses with the aperture wide open, rather than stopped down, leading to more accurate and reliable focussing. It certainly seems to work for me. It would be great if some one could confirm that this is correct.

So, how do you use the X-E3 for BBF?
