    is there a shortcut to lock exposure and focus on my nex camera without defining a soft key (all are occupied now).

    Not that I'm aware of. You can temporarily hold it by half pressing the shutter button

    My biggest complaint with NEX's is not being able to save commonly used settings.

    My wives point and shoot allows you to save 5 profiles. It includes ISO, WB and a few other settings.

    Best way in this case might just be to switch to manual focus and manual exposure - it's pretty much always locked then, until you want to change it.
