Took my little DL to my monthly FTX. It performed very well (for what I paid for it) I do need some filters (UV and neutral density) The light was horrible for most of the day. The AWB sucks, and I'll never use it again. After sundown I had to bump the ISO to 3200. The build-in flash works ok to use as fill-flash. The AF is sooooo slow. I had the shutter pressed all the way down and it will not take the picture. Overall, I'm happy, way better than P&S.

regarding your "...shutter pressed all the way down and it will not take the picture." change to AFC from AFS in your setup menu. In AFC it will take a picture if it's in focus or not, if that helps your situation. Sorry if you already know this.

Yeah, I knew about the Single or Continuous focus. Thanks. What you say about the kneeling soldier I think is irrelevant.
