    Is it possible to save a Myset without saving exposure details?

    For instance, I have two different MySets, one with S-AF and one with C-AF/Tracking, that I switch between by using L-Fn. When I switch to one MySetto the other the aperture and shutter speed also changes.

    What I want is to be able to use L-Fn to go from S-AF to C-AF/Tracking without changing the current exposure settings. Also if it would be possible to also go back from back focus to shutter button.

    I am using the E-M5 camera.

    The PASM setting is stored with the Myset. This can be very useful, for example I have one where it sets S mode and 1/1000 sec, among other things.
    I am fairly certain there is no way around it.

    It's an annoying feature of mysets that the aperture is saved in A mode and shutter speed in S mode.

    I was afraid that was how it was.

    It would be pretty good to be able to unselect settings that would not be saved with MySets, perhaps through a computer-software. But that is another discussion though.

    Not sure if this will work, but try saving ur settings in P mode. Let me know if this works?

    I saved the setting (Myset2) while on P mode, switched back to M. Load MySet1 and called for MySet2 through the L-Fn button. What happened was that MySet2 used P-mode.

    Perhaps you can find another quick way to toggle the AF setting without using my sets.
