Proper focus is the most important thing you have when you're shooting. I learned that the hard way years ago with inferior equipment that required rather precise focusing methods to achieve a decent result.

And infinity focus is a bit of a misnomer in regards to actual focal distance. The majority of today's AF lenses will focus past the infinity point to accommodate temperature variances, and camera auto focus systems.

So back button focus + single shot focusing + center focal point + complete disregard of the focal distance meter on the lens is a winning combination for me when it comes to choo choos.
