X-E1 features I never use

For a new X-E1 owner, I have made it work hard and have taken many shot over last couple of months. I love the camera, but I noticed there are features I never tend to use and that bothers me a little

For example I never use AF point selection - I always focus and recompose. I never use AE/AF lock button - exposure compensation wheel seems to help me achieve everything I need. And I don't use focus peaking - standard magnify-to-focus mode seems perfectly capable

I don't bother with in-camera JPEGs, film simulations or white balance - RAW files are not affected by those and I only use RAW files

I also don't use the custom button and not even sure what to assign to it. Everything I ever needed was easily accessible from the Q button or through dials on camera and through lens rings

And the only reasons I ever go into menu, is to delete all photos from the card

I am just wondering whether this is reasonably common, or I am missing out on features I do not use. What is your experience?

Thank you
