Congratulations on the new camera. I think you'll have a lot of fun with it. I've made two trips to Alabama Hills and Death Valley shooting mainly with the Z6. You're in for a treat.

In addition to programming the iMenu, if you need room for more settings you can set one of the options to bring up MyMenu. I use that for things like Battery, Format, Focus Shift, etc. that I don't use very often but still want quick access.

I found it very useful to program the Fn buttons and the Movie button while in Stills mode. I left the Fn2 button at the default - Focus. My Fn1 button is programmed to zoom to 100%, and I use it both before the shot and during image review.

If you are using AF-On to focus, keep in mind that you can hold AF-On down and invoke Manual focus with Focus peaking simply by adjusting the focus ring. It's an easy way to check focus or fine tune focus.
