AF-On: Metering and AF start (default)

AE Lock Button: One Shot – Servo

DOF preview button: Depth of Field preview (default)

Lens: AF-Off (default)

M-fn: FEL (default)

SET: Magnify

Main Dial: TV shutter speed (default) – this is the front dial

Quick Control Dial: AV aperture (default) – this is the rear dial
