Since the update when I hold the option key on any tool I no longer get the alternate function (i.e. zoom out on the zoom tool, open select on pen tool) but a camera tool. This is infuriating and I can't see where to change it back in preferences or keybaord shortcuts, can anyone help?

Thank you for reporting this. There is a bug where the new camera tool behavior engages when you hold the Option/Alt key even when it shouldn't. Until we fix the bug, you can work around this problem by disabling the new Activate Option - Left / Middle / Right Mouse Click For Camera Navigation option in Preferences > 3D.

So glad I was able to quickly find this answer - immediately was making me go crazy.
