Screen brightness shortcut?

Greetings, K-01 owners! As a soon-to-be possessor of a white/black model, I have a question for the K-01 cognoscenti on this subforum.

Is there a quick way to adjust the screen brightness, instead of having to push like 7 buttons to reach it in the menu like I must do on my K-7?

After an unfruitful forum search and manual scan, I'm afraid the answer is no. But if I missed something, please enlighten me! Thanks in advance!

I haven't figured out any way of changing brightness on the K-01, other than going into and navigating the menu's.

I did just see in the manual that you can specify which tab opens up when you hit the Menu button. That may be the best option.

I just change the brightness fairly often on my K-7 even though I turned the status screen off and rarely use live view. I thought the K-01 might have quicker access since the back screen is all you've got! Oh well, no biggie.
