  • You can use the physical aperture ring on CPU lenses to set aperture, if you change the setting f9 > Aperture Setting to "Aperture ring" instead of "Sub-command dial".

Moving the diaphragm without its ring is always unnatural to me....

  • You can choose ISO directly with the command dial, if you set d7 to "Show ISO/Easy ISO".

I suppose could be very handy! Rather than use 2 fingers to set it, or go to the menu ...

I also read that the Auto-ISO function is smarter and lets you use the old 1/focal length rule as the minimum speed !

Thanks for your info
