Mysets and Fn2 button?

I would like to assign the Fn2 button to bring up the Mysets table (normally accessed by pressing Menu | [camera 1] | Mysets).

Is this possible?

Jim Coplan: Autofocus in continuous shooting mode (still photos)
I am debating purchasing this camera. I believe that at 9 frames/sec, AF is locked on the first frame. I would be willing to accept a slower burst rate, in exchange for AF refocusing on the subject with every shot. I seem to recall reading that shooting at 4 fps does this. Can anyone confirm this?
Thanks.

Hi, Peevee1
Thanks for responding. I have a PDF of the manual, and I read that. C-AF = continuous autofocus, but that means (I think) that the system is continually updating the autofocus as long as the shutter button is pressed halfway (page 43). It doesnt say what happens when the shutter button is pressed all the way down, to initiate the burst of shots. Is it being contunally updated, same as when the shutter is held halfway down? The manual doesnt exactly say that, as far as I can tell. P 86 didnt help me.
Thanks again.
