    Has anyone found a way to assign ISO(or anything else) to the back wheel when pushed? I set the front one to control aperture / shutter in the priority modes and the back one to control exposure compensation, but see no way to assign another function to the wheel when pressed (it basically controls EC whether pushed or not).

    It is like having a fn button wasted...

    I think you have it right - it's EC or nothing. But it's only a single button push on the UP button to get to ISO, then the wheel works, so it's not a problem for me.

    Doesn't it do Program Shift (P) or Aperture Shift (A) or Shutter Shift (S or M)? (when not pushed)

    When pushed it does EC and I'm happy that it stays that way since it's such an essential adjustment.

    Yes, but you have one redundant function in any case: if in S or A, the back wheel does either the same as the front one (EC if pushed), or EC if pushed or not. I wanted to check if anybody found a way to give the back wheel a different function when pushed, so that say in A mode, you control A with the front wheel, EC with the back wheel, and some third parameter with the back wheel pushed.

    Let's hope for a 1.3. firmware...

    Okay. What third parameter would you like to see? To me the logical one is ISO but that is really redundant with it being permanently on a handy button.

    Flash comp adjust. If in wireless mode, pushing the rear dial could bring up the wireless adjust menu page.

    That would be ideal for me! Or ISO
