Gene51's suggestion is on point -- read the manual. I keep a copy of my manuals on my iPad and I refer to them all the time for things I forget or when I run into quirky situations. P.S. I'm a tremendous fan of BBF!

Lots of answers, some humorous, but this is the complete answer, with page references to the manual. There are several ways to do this, and all involve reassigning functions to other buttons.

You can assign exposure lock to the shutter button. Custom Settings C1, Shutter Release Button AE-L - set it to ON to lock focus when you half-press the shutter. This is independent of how you have implemented BBF. (Page 336)

You can also use custom settings F2 to reassign the Fn button with a little more flexibility - you can press and hold to lock focus, press and release to lock focus, you can press to lock focus and exposure, etc. (Page 356) And you can assign the Preview button to do the same thing as the Fn button. (Page 372)

If you are having trouble reaching the AE-AF button on the back with your thumb, consider reassigning AFon to either the Fn button or the Preview button, then using the other front button to do AE lock. These two buttons might be more accessible to a smaller hand than the back button.

And no, you don't need to trade in your D750. At least not until it's replacement becomes available.

I agree with a SharpShooter for all the same reasons. I find auto ISO, using manual mode, helpful when shooting in fast paced situations and environments. My cameras (D4, D5) handle high ISO extremely well and I have gotten outstanding IQ results way beyond the native ISO.

Here are some shots from a JV football game I shot yesterday. I used my 70-200 f2.8 and my 200-400 f4 (with monopod) on two D4 bodies. The home team (in blue) won, 27-6. It was very shady on the field so it was a challenge getting good light on the players' faces. I mainly shot in aperture priority at 2.8 and 4.0, which maintained shutter speeds at 1000 or faster throughout most of the game. Everything is pretty much SOOC with some minor cropping.

Great topic and posts. I don't typically utilize flash on camera, particularly considering I shoot in continuous mode. My starting point when shooting basketball is 1/800, f2.8, ISO 3200-8000 (depending on which gym/arena), I have 3 full frame bodies (2 D4's and a D600) and I shoot with a 24-70, 70-200 and/or a 120-300 on a monopod, all are f2.8 lenses. I shoot RAW and will typically run selected images through Define 2 to reduce noise. I have hit or miss results with my WB setting, usually settling for a Kelvin setting which minimizes the variations I get when shooting under mercury vapor lights. I'm intrigued about the possibility of setting up studio strobes, particularly in venues that I shoot often where I can get permission to do so. Thanks for all the contributions and various points of view!

Wow, what a great deal. I've just started to build my home studio so I'd only be interested in a few components of your offering. I'm sure someone will find this package deal interesting. Just curious why you're selling.

Looks like a little blur with the coach on the sidelines and a defensive player moving toward the line of scrimmage. Nothing that a faster shutter speed can't help, even with hand holding the camera. Also watch try to level out your horizon at the top. Finally, try to capture some action for a more interesting story. Without knowing your settings and lens, or If you had a specific question, that's all I can offer.

I've been using this lens for 2 years for football and basketball and I love it. Once you get used to maneuvering the lens and its weight you'll find it to be a solid performer. I occasional use the 2X teleconverter and shoot at f/5.6 when outdoors. It's very versatile.
