Ability to assign ISO to one of the two dials.

I know you can use the right direction button for changing ISO but it's no where near as handy as assigning it to a dial. That's such a huge upset for me when I bought the camera that I almost returned it. I'd rather control ISO than exposure. It seems it's easier to fix wrong exposure in post than it is to reduce unnecessary noise due to too high an auto ISO setting. I mean the whole point of IBIS on primes is to bring down the ISO to ridiculously slow shutter speeds. ISO control on the OM-D as it is now is downright annoying.

You can assign Fn2 to ISO, then push Fn2 and turn a dial

What's your preferred method for setting shutter speed, aperture and ISO?  For image quality purposes, you want the most exposure (light on the sensor) consistent with desired motion blur and DOF, so long as you're not clipping.  Increasing ISO on the E-M5 doesn't increase noise, other than indirectly by reducing exposure (increasing ISO does reduce dynamic range).
