Your custom functions (K-7)

Hello,

I received my K-7 a few days ago and I'm interested to know what changes other owners have made in the custom functions to make the camera more efficient.

I have disabled AF on shutter button (14), made the green button Tv shift (28), and turned off that distracting top LCD illumination (29).

I think it's rather personal and subject to change but there you go:
1. EV steps to 1/3 (1)
2. Sensisity steps to 1/3 (2)
3. Expanded sensitivity on (2)
4. Meter to 30s (3)
5. (1)
6. (1)
7. (2)
8. (2)
9 to 11: (1)
12: (2)
13: (1)
14: (1)
15 to 18: (1)
19: (4)
20: (4)
21 to 23 (1)
24: (4)
25: (4)
26: (1)
27: (3)
28: (1)
29 to 30 (1)
31 (2)
32 to 34 (1)
35 (2)
36: not used yet
37: (2) -> this one is a bit ridiculous, should be the default and not even an option!

Am I the only one who finds having AF not attached to the shutter button useful? It took me a while to get used to it, but it makes manual focusing AF lenses easier.

I like the sound of that. Will have to give it a try if my cam supports it.
