Automatic Exposure Hot Keys on K30

Is there a way to set a hot key to cycle automatic exposure modes (ie between spot metering, matrix etc) without menu diving?

On the K-5, there's a switch On the K-30 I think you have to use the two user modes. Have you tried them?

I havent adam, but yeah I guess I could set U1 for matrix, and U2 for spot.

Seems like it would be a good idea to add an AE option to the Raw/FX customizable hot key on the front of the camera?

yup, and Ive seen that switch on the K5 and Im jealous!

I don't have a K-30 at the moment, so I can't test this, but you should be able to press the info button to bring up exposure controls. It isn't as good as a hardware switch, but it can be pretty fast.
