Ah, different location in the menu system on typ 262 models with an LCD:
In the English section of the German/English manual, p128 describes the main menu and the 'picture parameters' menu. The latter includes the lens profiles and user profiles settings. Page 162 describes the User Profiles submenu, with all of the Management submenu functions as described above.
If I were to buy another M body, I'd likely pick one of either the M10-D or M10-M. I'd be looking for more of a niche use camera, and both of these have enough different about their features that they would satisfy that criteria.
But I'm unlikely to buy anything more for a while yet. I'm pretty happy with the gear I'm using now and don't feel motivated to spend much money on more for the present. :)
No matter where you go, there you are.
