Mine would be instant spot metering via the Fn button.


Assign spot metering to the AEL/AFL button via the menu.
Add AEL/AFL lock/hold if you wish
Swap Fn & AEL/AFL functions via the menu


Job done! Instan spot metering right under your thumb for when you need it. It can also be done with other metering modes but i find the Spot-Metering invaluable.


Whats your favourite tip or trick :)

Good tip. Not one I had thought of.

It is a good tip, however I use the Fn button for switching to MF. I might try the above though.

I have the secondary Command wheel set for Exp Comp in Aperture and Shutter Priority.

Great - just what I need!

Now - how do you 'assign spot metering to the AEL/AFL button'? I've just been fiddling with the menu, but can't see it!
