Thank you - this is actually a constructive comment

Yes, actually I have thought about it but I'm a bit worried about it coming off on my hands and also devaluing the camera. But my main point is why didn't Sony do this on the 5T - do you think that it is a clever idea to make the soft buttons invisible?

It won't come off. Try the 3M tape first.

I've not needed to look at the buttons since the second week of ownership; muscle memory took over. Seriously, blindfold yourself and press the buttons a few dozen times per day. Use the tape until you get used to it. If not, Sharpie it.

Must admit I find embedded buttons a bit fiddly and this post is interesting as it opens the idea of customising them. I think a small, transparent rubber (small bump stop protector) button might do the job. Something like (but need to check the size...)
