.... another feature I have never used on my camera.

I feel dumb, I had to look it up in my manual to see what the green button actually does.

it is actually pretty useful if you run program and tend to mess with exposure settings then get frustrated and want to throw the camera. I then just stare at the green dot and feel the waves of calm wash over my body.

Oh wait, you're supposed to push it?!?

Its also very good when using manual mode or Av or Tv mode. And works a treat with older (ie not KA or later) lenses (just hit it and it determines the shutter speed).

Green Btn

A must have if you're using older M lenses. You change the Aperture on the lens and push the green btn... the exposure will be set for you.
