Re: A rant on the menu system

Sure, there is the FN button to shortcut to some settings, but you’re only listed some.

Totally agree with you. The 7 has the triple dials but it's very limited what you can custom map to them.

Take for instance the Navigation button going to "focus settings". Okay the left dial chooses Autofocus Area then the right dial and the back dial are wasted on location of the flexible spot while the NSEW buttons on the back dial do the exact same thing. The NSEW buttons are much better/easier to move the flexible spot. Also there are two other focus settings that need quick access. AF/MF/DMF select and Autofocus Mode. So why not put these two other focus settings on the two dials that are being wasted? Put all the focus settings in this one place and have them selectable with the 3 dials. You can't. Ridiculous not to be able to.

Only about 1/3 of the menu items are available to be mapped to the 4 function zones. ALL of the menu settings should be available and there should be more than 4 zones.

It's like the engineers built this software and never did any beta testing with real photographers.
