Turn AE-L button on and off, tips and tricks

I found a trick to turn on and off the AE-L button:


Turn OFF AE-L button:

1. Turn on camera
2. press AE-L button several times just to check function. You'll see a star in the display.
3. press Live view
4. press ok in Live View. You'll enter zoom.
5. press Live view (without pressing ok before !). You'll leave Live view
6. press AE-L. It's truned OFF, you cannot toggle.


Turn ON AE-L button again:

7. press Live view
8. press ok in Live View. You'll enter zoom.
9. press ok once again. You'll leave zoom but stay in Live view.
10. press Live view. You'll leave Live view
11. press AE-L. It's truned ON again.

May be it's not a trick, but a bug only ?
