I flick over to the scene modes from time to time if I'm in a real hurry to grab a shot. It doesn't happen often but I appreciate the fact the option is there. It is a minor annoyance to dial all the way past the preset modes to get to video but we're talking First World Problems here..

Sport is about the only preset I use, and usually only in situations where the couple of seconds of difference between flicking the mode to Sport versus switching to T, dialing in an appropriate shutter speed, adjusting the focus method and altering the ISO means getting the shot or not. Happens once in a blue moon but like I say, rather it was there and live with the minor annoyances than not. Now if only the movie mode could be put next to the Green mode..
