Thanks Harj. I cropped off a little of both the left and the right sides to get the composition balance that I was looking for.

You should have told Harj you used the E3's autocrop feature.

Now that would be a good feature to have. Still learning about my E-3 although for what I do I have everything down pat. Still haven't decided what to control with the back button yet. Any suggestions?

Personally after trying different things for that Fn (function) button, I changed it to the P/A/S/M option. I like being able to just hold the Fn button with my thumb and use my front finger to turn the front dial and toggle quickly between Aperture or Shutter mode, etc. Just a finger and thumb of the left hand and you are quickly changing modes.

LOL. I must have been half asleep when I was typing. I meant right hand obviously. Thanks for correcting me.

What setting would the left dial, program mode, be set at? Does this feature override that setting?

Hi Sean. We are talking about the E-3 which does not have a left side dial for the program mode. It just has a little button that you hold down with a left finger and use your right finger to turn the control wheel to your mode. Since that is a two handed operation, I find it more convenient to program the right side function button to "P/A/S/M " to use with my right thumb while selecting with my right finger. Hope I haven't confused you.
