    -Fix the overexposure problem in bright sunlight.
    -Fix the dim-lighting defocusing issue. Though mine (inexplicably)
    only did this the first night I used it, blew focus on each shot but
    it hasn't recurred. My advice is to use the centre focus point and
    focus on specular highlights, lights, etc.
    -Speed up the focusing a bit. Dpreview was right, the old screw-
    driven D lenses are nearly as fast as the S lenses, and neither is
    blazing. Except the high-end FX lenses.
    -Eliminate the position of the little rubber door on the bottom of the
    grip, which can come open by accidental touch.
    -Put a lock on the protruding mode dial, it keeps changing position on
    mild bumps.
    -Stop-down preview button should be stiffer to prevent actuation by
    accident.

    Other than that, the camera works well and produces good images.

    Is this a first? Rich making an accurate criticism - that little rubber
    door is pretty annoying.

    This is probably the nearest Rich gets to "happy".

    How did you read this with your head buried in sand?

    Poor Rich, who apparently believes that anyone who doesn't share his
    multiple disorders "has their head buried in sand". ;-)
