Thanks for that ogl. There are some nice additions with this update. Notably the use of the +/- button for manual focus. And [Exposure Information Display]] is added. There are two options: [Always] or [Half Press].

To conserve the GRII battery I like having the screen turned off. I still don't see a way of checking exposure settings without having to change the display to other than off or change the exposure just to see were they are set. I was hoping this new Half-Press would have solved that problem to display exposure settings when the screen is turned off. Unless I am missing some setting when I have the display off the screen is just blank no matter what I do to check exposure. I wish I could half press to check the settings by seeing them at the bottom of the screen like usual.

It would seem so simple to do so maybe I am over looking something.
