Well, I do actually know its the photographer not the camera, and thats not you were implying but...other people have made comment about it and rightfully so, it seems odd. as much as this very thread makes that seem otherwise, and I shot in manual on both the 70s and 80 I owned... My concern was more like... paranoid I would be buying a trick. it sounds nutty i know, but its happened to me before. Let myself be convinced on something that was literally a shoddy built disaster of a product (not a camera though) and just lamented the decision and device forever after, also once bought a product and a month later the company goes under and I'm left with nothing for support or expansion. Now it seems contrary to post here and expect bad responses, but it isnt, because if such a person (unhappy) existed and there was any hope they were not just foaming at the mouth but constructive and reasonable, a forum like this is where i would find them. If I ask anywhere else i either am guaranteed a forum war over say sony vs pentax or I am guaranteed angry people who cant be human about a problem or error. If I bought the Sony, as an example, and I hated it and it was crap, I'm still stuck with it, I'm going to find a forum and discuss it find out if theres a fix, can it be worked around? Actually, I posted a very similar thread on a Sony board and while people like there sonys I gut a very telling overall feeling that the transparent mirror and electronic viewfinder was not cool and not well received. People were trying to convince me to buy used models before thses changes were made. They werent very happy with what Sony had done to Minolta and was doing and alot of them while saying they loved the camera seemed to kind of have a melancholy attitude about ti too. Gloomy Doomy. now look at the difference on this board. I got exactly what i was looking for, now if I can manage to find everything I want in one place at the best price but also decent support before it all goes away at midnight, or thats what I'm told, we'll be good!
