I keep programming and then forgetting what I did. I fall back on shooting RAW with basic JPEG (easy for social media) in Manual but letting the IS0 float ( a la Steve Perry) and using the focus ring for EC. I think I need to use the U1 U2U and U3 but haven't found the secret sauce.

Coming from the D850 which doesn't have U1/2/3 I didn't use the settings for the first two years. I then finally got around to figuring out what they did and can't live without them!

U1: settings for people (auto area, face/eye detect, AF-ON to AF-ON, DOF preview to subject tracking)

U2: same as U1 but animal eye detect

U3: settings for manual focus lenses (manual focus, AF-ON to Zoom 100%, DOF preview to Zoom 200%)

The ability to assign different custom button layouts to profiles is very useful.
