    I'm using back button focus(es) on the D500. So if I press the AF-ON button I'm in single point focus - if I just use the shutter I'm in AF-C, and if I press the centre of the joy stick it recentres the focus to the centre focus point.

    When in AF-C it is focus then release, in AF-S it is release.

    Shutter release button AE-L is "off"

    This D500 has a lot more shooting options than my D610 or D7100 has and learning what works best for me is taking some time - still in year one with this baby.

    For sure shooting birds in the bush, especially small ones that are similar in colour to the branches, is tricky and I do get as many hits as misses ( have it on CL for burst of shots just to be sure - makes for lots of "deletes" but then you get that one shot where the bird looks right at you (or you grand kids give that precious smile for a fleeting second).

    Having gone to BBF with my D610 I don't see myself not using BBF

    I also play around with the number of focus points to be used - 25 - 72 or all 153? Have not played with 3D focus much. Still lots to learn about this camera

    As for recomposing with shooting tiny birds in a bush at 500 mm - I'm happy when the bird is in the frame - these are seriously cropped images - this is a screen snipe of the image (no processing at all)

    My first outing to a wetland area with my new lens, seems sharp straight out of the box all hand held and the stink where the storks where nesting was unbelievably bad.
