    Hey guys,

    I read in some amazon review that a guy is using the c3 button as follows:

    Clicking c3 1 time = AF-S
    Holding c3 = AF-C
    Releasing c3 after holding = focus lock.

    I tried now many options, but how can I configure this? For me the AEL button would be OK too. But I don't understand how to make 1 click AF-S and holding af-c.

    Can someone help me. Out??
    Thanks

    I use the centre button with the toggle switch for back button focus and the C3 button for eye focus.

    So I can use back button with the lower part of my thumb and the eyefocus with the tip

    Works very well

    Thanks snap for the feedback. I am still trying to find out how it is possible to make it like explained above... That would be the best possible configuration for me

    Hi snap, so far sadly no. If I will find it out I will post it here. But another German forum explained that this is only possible with A mount lenses and the adapter. Then you can configure it like that. So far I am using the normal back button focusing. It would have been toooo good ;)
