Re: Gene, you can do this...

THANK YOU! I just changed mine to ON--I am always hopping from photographing my black dogs to photographing people, so now I'm using the sub command dial--more discreet and pro looking when I shoot now! Thanks for pointing this out...

  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!
