    Yes done that.

    But I am asking to have the following just by using dial

    Auto ISO <> 100 <> 200 <> 400 ...

    This is possible in auto mode as I see it.

    In Other modes, Auto ISO can be selected from menu options only not from the dial, is that so ?

    Thanks for looking into.

    Nikon "forces" you to use either all auto or manual. Unless you make the effort to change it to go into the menu to get it changed

    But, when in Auto/Auto no flash modes, I can press iso button and rotate dial to toggle between auto iso and manual iso settings, very handy feature. Can this be made default for other modes also ?

    Thanks and good night.

    you can assign to access the menu to the Fn or DOF preview button to access that ISO menu quickly..

    Thanks, but the view in viewfinder becomes dim and dimmer as I continue to increase F stops.

    Phew...

    Because as you stop down the aperture, it becomes narrower and lesser light enters the lens, so the viewfinder will dim down.

    :-) I know that. Having difficulty to "preview" the final image, I think it is guess work with some camera assistance.

    Don't worry, as you gain more experience, you can roughly know how the final image is

    Eventually, u will change that button to do something else (Bracketing, RAW capture quality, built-in flash changes...).... DOF preview can only help so much at so little times... Know you lenses well enough , u will not need this feature handy.

    That seems to work better and more distinct with film cameras. Moreover for DSLR, you can check your every shot on the spot quite precisely on the LCD, whereas in film camera, we can only see the result after processing, therefore it is a more crucial use in an SLR than a DSLR.
    What I really missed most, is my first SLR. An Olympus OM2 with the Zuiko 35mm f/1.4, back in 1982!

    Yeah, makes sense.

    From Nikon, there are 2 types for magnification.

    The first one replaces your current viewfinder cover which gives you about 1.2 magnification (S$41):

    DK-21M

    The second one gives you 2x, but at the expense of you not being able to see the entire viewfinder ($80):

    DG-2

    Also note that DG-2 requires an adapter for D7000.
