If I recall correctly, I believe that Thom advocates for using back button AF with the thumb, pressing the shutter button with your middle finger, leaving your index finger always available to access the controls on the top plate with your index finger and the custom Function buttons with your middle, ring and pinky and fingers.

Personally, that feels extremely awkward to me and like it would only really work on a mono- or tripod. However, my camera holding style is geared to prioritize my ability to continually and very quickly adjust focal length on my workhorse lens, the 70-200.

Yeah. That seems totally whack. Well, some people think that those of us that use BBF are whack. So to each their own. But I will never be using my middle finger to trigger the shutter button.

Sounds like the rude F on a flute!
