Thanks Carl,

I have actually been using "P" mode so just set this up on the front wheel. Very cool!

I'm not sure what to set the programmable button for yet. Perhaps the ND filter.

Right on :). I really like that addition to the G series, very helpful, wish it worked in every mode (including scene modes etc too).

I have mine set to the ND filter. That way I can take advantage of the bright aperture during daylight. Since I shoot raw most of the of the other choices don't really have a place in my shooting either.



Yes, it would be nice if it worked in some of the other modes too (except M, Tv and Av of course)

ND filter it is. Makes sense to be able to get to that quickly when needed.

I wish these manufacturers could allow the cameras to switch automatically to JPEG mode from RAW when you select modes that require it. Its the same way on my A77 and is quite frustrating. It just doesn't seem that it would be all that hard for them to implement in the software.
