Z5 - can I have W/B fine tune on assign buttons?

I was talking to the Sony rep at the IOV forum yesterday and even he couldn't help me. On my Z1 I have assign buttons 5 and 6 set up to give me fine adjust of the daylight white balance, and I find this incredibly useful in run 'n' gun situations.

So if I can cool the image by clicking button 5 and warm it by clicking button 6. If I click button 5 five times (good reminder) I find myself filming with the (manual, natch) artificial light w/bal.

Question is, can I set up the Z5 assign buttons to give me the same facility?

Tom, it doesn't have that ability. It has a limited amount of items to choose from and WB isn't even on the list. There are things I wanted to use the assign button for as well but they're not there for me either.
