Is there a battery grip for my 50D that has a separate AF button I can use for back button focusing like there is on the camera body? I love back button focusing my my current battery grip does not have a separate button to do that and I don't want to re-program my * button to do it because I use that for precise flash metering when using flash.

In my case it works just fine withe the "*" button (and I haven't changed the standard button settings)
It's true this extra button is missing on the pack but personally I'm not missing it.

Happy shooting.

But I use the * button for the pre-flash exposure sample when shooting flash at weddings so I cannot afford to lose that function.
