Move AE-L function to another button?


I've checked the button config for Raw Fx and was hoping that AE-L could be moved easily but no.

Is there any way I can get the AE-L function to the RAW Fx button on my K-3?

I don't believe so, especially because the ae-l button itself isn't customizable.

Ok, as I suspected. I have a disability effecting my hands and have some issues using the ae-l button hence the question.
Thanks for your reply. :-)

You can try setting the camera so AE locks when AF locks instead.
