    Still learning about my new D7000. I've come across assigning buttons to frequently used functions. It appears that there are
    three different buttons that can used. 1) FN function button, 2) Preview button, and 3) the AE-L/AF-L button.
    Could I solicit the help of any of you who have in fact assigned these buttons. And ask, what have you assigned the above #1
    #2 and #3 buttons too, and possibly why.

    Function button: Access top item in MY MENU.

    Preview button: Spot metering.

    AE-L AF-L remains default.

    I don't remember the designation for the 1 & 2, but.... On my d700 one of them turns one the Live View and the other one turns on favorite menu. On my 300s one of them turns on the favorite menu and the other one is the preview. Similar configuration on the rest of the bodies.
    AE/AF - on most of the bodies locks AF. Except on D90, which I use for home videos, AE/AF locks only exposure.
