  3. It looked grotesque to me - and significantly no weight was quoted. Liked
    the sensor, but no image stabilisation for a 420mm lens? An f/4.6 lens
    when other offer f/2.8? Look where the EVF is stuck - a last minute
    add-on?

    I like the idea of a v. large LCD and realtime image preview for copy-stand
    work. But as always, lets see how the theory translates into reality. ;-)

    I mentioned the "no weight" thing on another group. It might be a
    plastic thing.

    more likely an attempt to keep nose/cheek prints off the lcd screen.

  10. Being left-eye dominant, this camera probably is exactly wrong for me!

    This was my concern with the 7D... but my nose keeps pushing the damned
    ISO or MSET buttons...

    Indeed, the viewfinder should either be at the bottom of the camera,
    or stick out towards the back another inch. As it stands, flush, smack
    in the middle of the top pleases nobody except the flat-faced nation
    who make them.

    Iv'e already melted a D70 plastic LCD cover because of insect
    repellent that was on my face at the time.

    DEET is a must have: to keep critters like this off me.....

    How would that differ practically from taking advantage of the
    tilt-and-swivel LCD already present in a lot of high-end zlr:s?

    More proof the old flatfaced SLR design should have been dispensed
    with. Olypus's E10, 20 and E1 were at least attempts to rectify the
    situation. The new Pentax medium format digital also looks good
    in this regard. Is sad when an industy is held back from innovation
    because "the old guard" simply cannot adapt to new ideas.

    I just sort of walked over to a train that had stopped and took
    the shot. But if someone (like a cop) saw me pouring something
    on the coupling, I'd be in for some explaining at least.

    Porsche 911 another example. People want to hold on to a bad design because
    it reminds them of some classic hertiage despite the flaws. Nikon being
    another example ;-)

    K-M's "Z" and "A" series digitals (zlrs/compacts) are very different
    than the 'old guard' style SLR.

    For the 7D, if I was right eyed dominant, this would not be an issue at
    all. At that it's not that much of an issue, period.

    K-M (like most of the other DSLR's) based their camera on a film body.
    And I'm glad they did. Photographic-work is almost identical between
    the 7D and Maxxum 7. Between my 9 and the 7D it is very, very close.

    Cheers,
    Alan.

    Just question his appreciation of art with a limp wrist posture.
