    Just wondering how G3 users are customizing the settings. I leave the Fn1 & Fn2 buttons on default but I'm not sure how to use the C1 & C2 dial settings. I use adapted lenses a lot so I'm wondering if it could be useful for that. Thanks.

    The only benefit would be assigning AE lock on one fn. Button.

    I have the two custom settings set as C1 A ISO 160, C2-1 M ISO 160, C2-2 A ISO 1600, C2-3 M ISO 1600. I also have the Fn1 button set to either AE lock (for A), or preview (for M). This lets me keep the A/M settings on some in-between ISO, which are the two I use predominantly (also use adapted lens 60+% of the time). What I would love is to be able to change the video record button to handle another option, like cycling thru metering modes (usually left on spot metering).

    I use the c1 dial to set B&W mode. I use the Fn1 button for AF lock and the Fn2 button for flash exposure compensation. Haven't set up the other custom settings dial.

    I use the C1 to have low resolution jpegs, so that I can shoot panoramas. Although I normally shoot RAW, there's no benefit to shoot RAW in panoramas and there's also no benefit for me to stitch huge files. Therefore, when I want to shoot panoramas I just swap to C1 and then back to my usual A mode.

    The C2, I have it programmed to the lowest ISO and IS off so that I can shoot night long exposures.

    C 1 have set up for B/W, C2 for auto bracketing, 3 shots 1+ stop 1- stop.

    the fn buttons , I find are totally in the wrong place, find it impossible to push them with camera to the eye
