Page 105 of the user guide - it looks like the "Movie Button" can be assigned a function. There is also the shortcut button. Maybe one of this button could be assigned the AE lock feature. I'm using the AE lock feature frequently.

I have the camera (I live in Japan). You can assign AE lock to either of these buttons.

Good information kitchenbug.

And with that assignability, the organization of buttons and click wheel functions on the Mk II makes a lot of sense to me:  three buttons in close proximity, within easy thumb reach, control AE lock, focus point selection and manual focus operation; the click/control dial controls ISO, Exposure Compensation, Flash and Macro mode; and the two buttons assigned to setting infrequently changed general camera operations (DISP and MENU) are relegated to the bottom of the body as these would not normally be thumb initiated operations at image capture.

Different from previous G-series bodies, certainly; dumb, maybe not so.  Only real hands on experience will tell.
