I have a come from a D300 and D200 and I too find the U1 and U2 modes heavily compromised by the lack of ability to adjust exposure, and yes I cannot see where the web enthusiasm for U1 and U2 modes can be justified.

If you are using U1 or U2 and decide to change from (say) aperture to shutter priority you will have to reset virtually everything, so the uses are very narrow.

I have set up sports in U2, using aperture priority, though I may change this to manual as this is arguably the most versatile, if automatic ISO is used. U2 is set up for portraits where I know I will use aperture priority.

A firmware update would be nice. I'd like to use scene for something/anything else, such as U3, and if the function button could adjust exposure mode in the U modes we'd be all set.
