By default, the front dial changes aperture in A and M modes, the back dial changes shutter speed in S and M modes.

But you mentioned in another comment that you use a dumb adapter. That means the front dial won't do anything. The back dial should still control shutter speed in S and M mode. (It does for me).

Thanks, back wheel has been intermittently not doing anything and I don't yet know why! I'm assuming its user error and will report if I figure it.

About other customizations: I have assigned OK button to 1:1 zoom, joystick press to jump to center focus point, Fn1 to open custom menu (which I've configured for myself) and Fn2 to change focus mode. That's it.


This reminds me:

1. Anyone know how to centre the selected zoom area, once zoomed in? Rather than waiting . . till . . yellow . . . box . . . . . gets . . . . . . . zzzzzz.

2. I still don't know how to manually change ISO, and seems it can't be done with either wheel!? Front wheel turns of auto-ISO, then what!? EDIT: The yellow ISO appears after turning OFF auto-iso (thus allowing manual-ISO to be set with back wheel) - I was confused thinking this was auto-ISO (saw yellow, didn't read ).
When auto-iso selected it allows the ISO to be changed with back wheel too, yet this is NOT changing manual-ISO but setting auto-ISO parameters (i think - max, min auto-iso?).
