Using the Back Focus Button

Once you get used to this method, you will find it the best way to operate auto focus.

Winter Streets

Between the polar vortexes and the frost quakes, came a brief relief of milder air. Taking advantage of the situation, I hit the streets of Toronto with my Nikon Df in hand. Content for our street style blog (found here) was very low so I was hoping to find a few smiling faces for the blog and do a little non-interactive street photography as well. Very pleased with the Df. I have it configured perfectly now using the back focus button and leaving the camera in continuous focus mode. One touch engages focus and if the subject is moving, I hold down the button for continuous focus. Lens used: Sigma 35mm 1.4, Nikon 50mm 1.8G, Nikon 85mm 1.8G. All of lenses are very good and lightweight, with possibly the except of the Sigma, which is a bit on the heavy side at 600+ grams.
