what about AEL (exposure lock) ? I 'd assume Olympus shall have such functionality that can be assigned to a separate button.

Yes, I have exposure lock on with a half-shutter press, but using Mode 3 so the autofocus is assigned to the function button.

If I change the mode to get exposure lock with a function button (Mode 1 or 2), the autofocus shifts to the shutter button, which I don't want as my point of focus is rarely centre of frame.

Seems I'm stuck with the situation unless a new Mode 4 is introduced which will lock both focus AND exposure via the function button.
