What button configuration do you use for back button focusing on the EM5 Mark 2?

Potentially a strange question, I know.

But every camera I've owned, personally, has had a AEL/AFL button. Now, I understand that the E-M5 mark 2 doesn't need one as every button is customizable. However...

The placements are strange. (and this is from a person that loves this camera)

Generally, i like to have my thumb on that button mentioned above, and then my pointer on the shutter (ok, you're with me so far)

But the FN1 button is a little too close to the eye cup for my thumb and the other function buttons on the top, are on the top.

Yes, I know MORE buttons can be customized but I am curious what everyone else uses. I have an idea what I might end up using, but again....curious to know what others use.
