    Hi Chris, how much did it actually help by assigning the back button focus..? Both in Wide angle and macro...

    In your opinion...

    I've been sold on it for many years starting with terrestrial photos, my Canon DSLR stays in C-AF all the time and I use back button focusing for all my photography so it was a natural progression to use it under water. SO it's difficult to say how much it improved things as I've only ever shot that way.. Once you get used to it you can quickly focus and recompose so you don't need to get into moving AF points. You need to be a little more careful in macro due to the shallow DOF so you don't change distance as you recompose. And there's no feeling for the half press on the main shutter button.
