    Now that this camera has been in the hands of the pros for a little while, could you share the settings you have on your camera as far as picture mode, saturation, etc. domyou use full screen or spot focusing/metering?

    Top function button is my MF/AF switch, the other button is set to exposure lock. I disabled the review picture function and sometimes disable face priority. I do spot focusing and e-mode(default) exposure. I don't trust the camera to know what I want to focus on :). I tend to shoot in aperture priority mode. If I don't like the exposure choice I'll used the exposure dial to make corrections.

    I haven't messed with saturation/color settings yet. I prefer to do color fixes in post. I'm hopping Adobe Raw for this camera comes out soon. If it doesn't come out soon, I may look into it.

    I'm no pro, but here is my current setup

    In aperture priority:
    - Fn1 - AEL
    - Fn2 - Focus Point HP - switches between single point, center AF and evaluative 39-point AF
    - REC - ISO

    Metering: Auto, with occasional spot metering. I found the ESP metering very good.
    WB: Natural
    Saturation:Normal. Any modifications will be done in LR4.
