Back focusing with AF-ON: what about shutter button?

I prefer focusing with the back af-on button: bottom part of screenshot, blue circle myself same as red square canon suggestion.

But... I set the shoot button on lock exposure (blue circle on top) while canon suggests measuring (red square).

Why? What's the difference?

The recommend selection does not lock the exposure, but you can use the [ * ] button to lock it.

The function that you have chosen immediate, and always, locks the exposure.


You can set the camera however you wish.
