It's been a almost a couple of weeks since I turned the back button focus feature on. Last night, I turned it off because I miss the half button press. I realized that I can HBP and then just press the AE/AF Lock button as it was intended to be used and also get great results. As much as I like getting all technical and running things in manual, I also want to try to embrace the Auto functions. I almost never shoot Manual but prefer A and S priority. I think I need to put it on full auto for a while and see what I get. Another thing is shooting raw. As cool as it is for editing, 98% of my raw images are just taking up space. Do I need that? I don't think so. I think I'm going to shut that off and only turn it on if I'm shooting some great landscapes and I think I might want the perfect image. I'm not giving up on them, just going to be more selective. I've learned a lot since I got this camera and I'm sure things will change again as I learn more and take more pictures.
