Yup, that's the way my buddies D90's work I think. Personally I don't like it as well as the button system my Sony uses as I tend to continue holding the lens barrel/zooming as I'm firing and want to be sure the thing is autofocusing. With the Nikon system, I think I'd futz it up continuing to manually override the autofocus hanging onto the lens. More intuitive for me to release my thumb from the override button and continue working the lens but like anything, you adapt to using what you got!
Good thing its Digital and I can just trash the bad ones. I agree Doug, I will take a ton of bad shots learning to get this method down but it doesn't cost extra money and it will be worth it.
