I too miss having presets. It's an astonishing omission given the software nature of the mode selection. I sincerely hope Sony left enough RAM to make this available through a firmware update.

I particularly get caught out when switching between a Sony lens and a legacy lens - I have to go to Setup and change the way the AF/MF button works for magnified focus. Really irritating, and the cause of a few missed shots so far.

I didn't want to go through resetting the buttons when I change lens systems either. My solution was to put the MF assist on the right button - I can reach it very easily.

Someone (?) had a great idea for a firmware enhancement - make the AF/MF button contextual so it always magnifies if the camera doesn't sense an E mount lens.

I take this back - I spent a few hours shooting with legacy glass today (Oly 24 and 50) and found the right button for MF assist to be uncomfortable in actual use - but the AF/MF button is perfect. I've decided to change the AF/MF button setup to reflect what lenses I'm using that day.
