Gene, you can do this...

I would like to have the ability to adjust exposure compensation in Av or Sv modes without first having to press the EC button- Canon allows this which I found very useful and easy to do without having to take the camera away from your eye.

I have my E-3 setup to use the front dial for EC, done the same in the D700, although setting this up is very convoluted and wish it had been easier.

  1. Go to Custom Settings Menu

  2. Enable "Easy Exposure Compensation" in b4.

  3. By default this allows the main command dial to adjust EC, you can reverse this and use the sub-command dial by switching them in Custom Setting f9.

On the E-3 this is is very easily set in the "Buttons/Dials" menu, it took me a while to figure this out on the D700.

This is also documented in Pg. 293 of the manual. Hope this helps.

Cross point AF sensors spread out more would be nice.

Yes, definitely!
