    Re: I have gone to shooting continuous with my 7100

    Fish; how can I assure focus lock when it blinks between lock and not locked quite rapidly as the subject moves. I have to read Brent's reply again as maybe he answered that question. Paul

    Brent; I really like shooting Back Button Focus, I don't think with this that I can press the shutter half way down, Paul

    I don't use back button focus, so I don't know. All I know is I would NOT use AF-C focus for stationary or slow moving subjects. Maybe this is why I never bothered with back button focus, I would rather have sharp photos. Perhaps someone else can explain how to use AF-S focus with back button focus.

    Simply release the AF button after initial focus lock, and the behavior is similar to AF-S.

    I tend to over-think/over-analyze, so it happens to me all the time.
