So far I've only used TAv and M on mine. What am I missing?

I shoot documentary for my wife and I use P for that because it is fast and better than good enough. Most of my pleasure / hobby shooting is with manual lenses so that's always done M.

I have't tried Green Mode yet.

I don't know... I have been handed a Nikon camera and was able to take a picture of the owner. I was handed a Canon and the owner almost took it back because I was so long trying to find the shutter button. My shutter finger kept going to the wrong place...

... Seriously how does the AF micro-adjustment gets bumped to -10 from +3 while the idiot is putting the camera to his face and pushes the shutter button after missing it two times and still bumping the camera so the shot is a big blurry mess? Never had a more terrifying time watching someone take a photo. Especially with my gear!
