    I want to set up the D700 such that the camera only autofocus when I hit the AF-on button. How Do I kill autofocus on the shutters half press?

    Three steps:

    1) Remove plastic wrapper from instruction manual
    2) Open instruction manual on page 287
    3) Read the section about option a7 in custom settings.

    Thanks alot. Yeah the manual is pretty huge, I actually went through Ken rockwells guide but I must have missed it. Its option a5
     
  5. I always keep the manual in the box, and download it to my computer on .pdf so I can just use the search option when I'm looking for something. It works great!
