I seem to be doing the opposite of everyone else on this thread (which probably means I'm missing something).
I used back button focus on my t2i/550d for everything. I would use the center point, and the focus and recompose. Like most others, this worked pretty well for me, except for issues with nobody else being able to use my camera,
I would love to hear from others on this, with so many others in this thread using back button focus on 5d3/1dx I feel like I must be missing something.
Switch your camera to green box mode before handing over. AF goes back to default as do most other things.

Indeed, I actually like that issue! I hate to hand my camera over to anyone. Well, maybe with the exception of my assistant but I watch her carefully too!
Agreed though, if turning it over to someone else, just put it in that green box mode...
