    Assigning functions to Function Button/GRD2 and GX100

    A useful feature of the GRD2 and the GX100 is the Function Button to which you can assign various functions. So far I've assigned AE Lock because pressing the shutter half-way locks both the focus and the AE, which means that there is no other way of separating these two functions except by assigning AE Lock to the Function Button. However, it also would be useful to assign the Function Button to switch between AF/MF. What do you think of these alternatives, or of other possible assignments?

    Hi Mitch, I did the manual focus on my GRD2. I would like to use the AE lock, but I guess it's one or the other. I use the AE lock on my GX 100 though. I guess my thinking was that the GX focuses a bit faster than the GRD does in AF mode. I actually felt like I was getting the hang of the GRD yesterday, when I could switch quickly to MF, when I wanted a close up of someone about a meter away.

    Actually, the D-Lux-3 has a good implementation of this: it has a lever on the lens barrel for switching between AF/MF/Macro and has another one for switching aspect ratios (4:3, 3:2, 16:9).

    I also use the Fn button for AE lock.
    You can also assign functions (4 I think) to the ADJ Lever, Focus included.
    I use that alot for ISO and EV although for Focus it's probably not any faster than just using the Menu

    Same practice.
