This may be something most users already know but I did not see it in the users manual.

I just noticed that when a change is made in U1 or U2 the change stays with camera on/off but will revert back to saved settings once the mode dial is turned.

For example if I change my aperture to f 5.6 and U1 setting had 1.8 as saved f-stop, when camera powered off and then on f5.6 is set but if I turn mode dial and get back to U1 it will be f1.8.

This could be helpful if tweaking U1 settings for a certain purpose during a shoot and you keep turning camera off but it could be a disadvantage if you tweak settings and forget you did this and come back later expecting U1 settings to be set as saved.
