    Backbutton autofocus XT-1 - Anyone use it?

    I've tried to use my backbutton autofocus on my XT-1 when set to manual.
    It feels awkward. Not sure if it's the location of the button so close to the grip or it's that the buttons are not tactile enough.
    I have always loved separating my shutter from other camera functions using backbutton autofocus. Especially with Canons.
    Does anyone shoot like this with the XT-1 and if so, any tips or insight?

    I have an x-e2 and x-a1, but i use half press shutter for AF.
    even when I had DSLR's i never really liked back button focus much.
