    Returning AF to Shutter button

    The BBF is working great for me in many situations, but there are times when I want to AF with just the shutter button. Problem: I can't figure out how to get back there. Search on Forum, You Tube, Manual - - I can't seem to find my way there. I don't want to just keep pressing on the Multi selector - - I'll mess everything up.

    Can anybody help here? THANKS!

    Someone might come along and be able to walk you through this but I cannot remember myself right now so I found the video that shows how to set it up. It is short and should be easy to back track through it.

    I set U2 to be BBF in Manual Mode with Auto-ISO and AF-C. I cap my ISO at around 6400 or so if I remember correctly. When I'm not using U2, my shutter button controls the shutter and use AF-S. It's very easy to switch back and forth.

    Out of curiosity, what type of shooting do you prefer the shutter button focus over BBF?
