    D500 focus point quick change

    The D500 BIF thread got me thinking about this, but I didn't want to hijack that thread.

    One of Steve Perry's tips that I have found quite useful is assigning the PV button for single point focus while having the back button set to group. This allows for a faster change to single point for a static subject.

    exactly what i have set up on mine.

    joy stick = single point
    AF-ON = group
    PV button = 25 point focus

    all other on my setting are unticked as not used, if i ever require to change and try i can do easily.

    Almost the same on both my cameras:
    AF-ON = single point
    joy stick = group

    I don't use the PV as a focus point selector.
    Works very well.

    I may like the joystick better than the PV button. I think I'll try that.

    cant go wrong with that, buttons are next to each other + its easier to move the focus point about as well without taking your thumb off it
