I think you misunderstand what I'm trying to find. Almost all regular shutter releases can do the two functions I asked about. What I'm trying to find is a wireless shutter release with the two functions that also doesn't preclude me from being able to mount a speedlight to the hotshoe.
My hähnel Giga T Pro II does half-press half press for AF, full press for release or continuous burst. It connects to the remote port, so while the receiver can be mounted in the hotshoe, it doesn't need to be (which is good, as that's where the ST-E3-RT sits.
When your ST-E3-RT is on the hotshoe, do you just have your hahnel receiver dangling from a wire off the 3-pin port or something?
If you're worried about vibrations caused by the very light receiver hanging from the port and swinging in the wind, you can velcro it to a tripod leg or mount:
Or if you get really anal, you can use the thread in the base of the receiver and mount it with a more solid option:
Such as clamping it onto a tripod leg:
