    What have folks found to be the most useful custom soft key assignments to simplfy access to various shooting functions, and minimize the need to navigate through the menu system?

    I've only recently moved up from the point-and-shoot world, and am trying to decide what the most efficent set-up might be so I'm not hunting thru the menu screens when I'm out taking pictures....and since I'm new to many of the controls available on the NEX I'm not entirely sure which would be most useful to have on the soft keys.

    Top soft button - Menu with a setting to always open on the top menu item (mode dial wheel).

    Middle joystick button - custom functions - ISO, Metering mode, WB, AF mode, Flash mode

    Rightmost press of joystick wheel - Flash exposure compensation.

    I wish there was a dedicated button for exposure lock, I assigned it to the bottom soft button but it gets replaced by MF zoom when using legacy lens.

    Anyway, this is about as close as it gets to DSLR setup, I don't feel held back by lack of controls.
