You can assign the green button, next to your right index finger, to do center-AF point.

When it is set up like this, you push that with your index finger, then push the 4-way pad with your thumb, and focus, no extra button pushing. You have a maximum of 3 quick button pushes to reach any focus point (green, and 2 direction pushes), and you always know where you are when you push the green button. You don't have to push OK or anything.

Worked pretty well for some action shots I was taking.

As for changing the metering method, I find it pretty simple especially now that the e-dial can change the setting when hovering over it. Hit info, go to metering, move e-dial. To change again, hit info, move e-dial. Works with any setting including auto-focus mode (though I pretty much only use select AF point). If you set green button to center focus, using the e-dial switches between modes. If you set green button to center focus, using the e-dial switches between modes. Then hit info and its still on metering mode, use e-dial to change that.
