Lens barrel controls

The only plastic area of the case is this area on the side of the lens barrel which houses several other controls, described below:

Barrel buttons

MF
AF
Manual / Auto Focus

Physically switches the autofocus system on or off. When autofocus is disabled the front focus ring (that large ring around the front of the lens barrel) becomes a "fly by wire" focus system. On the LCD display (or EVF) there's a focus indicator > o < which indicates how close your manual focus is to the autofocus point.
T/W Zoom

Zooms the camera Wide or Tele, this control is repeated on the rear of the camera.
Exposure Compensation

Held and used in combination with the command wheel to set the exposure compensation (+/-2 EV in 0.3 EV steps), a metering bar is displayed on the LCD (or EVF).

Manual White Balance / AF in manual focus mode

This button can't really be referred to as "one touch" as you have to select the manual white balance option from the white balance menu, aim the camera at a white subject then press this button, you can't just press it to automatically set a manual balance.

In manual focus mode: This button doubles as a trigger for the auto focus system. You can switch the camera to manual focus mode and then press this button to automatically focus. Useful for locking the focus on a subject for multiple shots.

INFO
