I. too, hate the getting rid of the middle click and putting in the switch to go from fast scroll to precise scroll, but this is what I just did. I changed the scroll left and right (which I'm not used to using) into middle clicks. Instead of clicking middle mouse button by pushing down, I push left or right. Not ideal, but not bad.
I can't change the button below because that's what I use for Expose Windows.
This was really a dumb bone headed move by Logitech though. In fact I bought this mouse because the Magic Mouse didn't have a reliable middle click.

Completely agree that not having a middle click on the wheel is a woeful omission that makes it super clunky for any program - ProE / Creo and Solidworks in my case that use that fuinction for navigation.
(I too bought because Apple's Magic Mouse does not support a middle click in Windows)
I was even assured by Currys / PC World here in the UK that the gentle click on the mouse wheel was a single click, the mode change to scroll by line was a "double click'. Totally wrong.
So, the other "unified' Logitech mouse is too small for my hand, so I bought this one, and this one requires me to constantly change from comfortable scroll placement to doubled up middle finger to make the centre button the click, which then has a different pressure to click as well.
Nice shape and smooth scroll, the rest is a disaster for CAD - i don't want to have to try to re-learn middle click behaviour to use a mouse that then needs to be un-learned again if switching to a 'normal' / microsoft etc PC mouse.
Maddening omission - I would rather it had only one scroll mode but follwed convention for the middle click.
