Two questions:

Now that I've dedicated my AE-L button to Back Focus, is my only option for accomplishing Exposure Lock depressing the Shutter Button half-way?

I sure wish there were 2 Fn buttons on the camera. That would be a natural if I didn't have Fn assigned to Spot Meter. It seems to me that Spot Meter can only be assigned through the Custom Menu. Hitting the Metering Button and spinning the Rear Command Wheel only cycles through various degrees of area metering. But not true Spot Meter.

Is my understanding of that correct?
