    Thanks for the clarification, Steve. Glad to see you back!

    Cindy @hark , well I ended up getting a d500. A few things I've learned. You asked above about how to get out of a memory bank and back to regular. You probably figured it out by now, but you can't. You are always in a bank. One video suggested thinking of them as 'cameras'. Camera A, Camera B, etc. So it doesn't remember particular saved settings, it just remembers where you left things. In a way, that might work out for me. I didn't care for the U's, if I changed something and I didn't specifically save it, it would go away. Not with a power cycle but with moving the mode dial. It got confusing.

    My quickest way to change d500 banks so far is fn2-my menu. I thought I found another way but its really clunky and not useful. Program the fn1 button for button +wheel to change the group. The problem is there is no indication. You have to bring up the info menu to see what you changed. And it only works for the shooting banks, not the custom bank. Nothing in the shooting banks I want to change as a group like that. I would have designed it to give an indication and make it so fn1 + front wheel does one bank and fn1 + back wheel does the other bank.

    Something else of interest... You can have shutter button focus active along with the back button (A8). And you can set the bb to AF-ON with a particular area mode selected, different from what you are currently using with the shutter button. You can't work af-s or c into the mix though, only area mode. So that's all I have so far. I'm getting lost in videos but not much real shooting yet.

    Thanks, Nick. I too purchased a D500 but haven't ventured into the banks yet. I was afraid of exactly what you mentioned - the bank wouldn't allow you to get out of it without going to a different bank.

    But mostly I am interested in AF-C with BBF so haven't attempted to change anything else. Right now my Nikon 1.7x refurbished TC just isn't operating like it did within the initial 30 days of purchase. That's been my biggest concern. At least I purchased a Square Trade warranty - one that I will definitely use when it seems businesses are operating more normally.

    Thanks again. I appreciate your detailed info.
