I may be missing something important, but I cannot find a way to get all the setting conveniences I'd like to be available, given all the controls available. This is not new to the D4, but I had hoped....

So, wouldn't it be nice to set preview to preview, Fn to spot meter, AF-On as is, AE-L (hold) or similar, and the leveling meter all available quickly? I thought I found it by using Fn-dials set to AE-AL but that is not so useful, at least in A-priority mode. Hmmmmm--frustrating--so close but so far.
thanks for any wisdom on this.
