Rather than doing manual whitebalance I like to use the outdoor WB preset and have programmed two of the user buttons to shift outdoor color temperature up and down. I find this really useful for quickly tweaking the color. But you could also program a manual white balance setting on one of the switch positions so you could easily A/B while shooting.

I find myself using black stretch most of the time personally. And of course you'll want to use the zebra patterns for exposure.
