Sorry,. really it was not ment to be a slam at all.
I absolutely love this camera.. and I thought I made that clear.. (the smillies were supposed to indicate.. like in kindergarten when you get a smile or a frown for a grade?)
Again.. I was asked (or rather the question was asked) ... so I answered honestly.. no slam meant.
Maybe the camera is too new for me to air any "wish lists" but really.. in six months the 'net will be filled with them.. just as there was for every other DSLR before it.. we've done it for the 10D 1D D60 and D30 before it..
There is ALLWAYS room for improvement.. well almost allways, but I have only held perfection in my hands on a very few occasions in my life.. and a Camera has yet to be one of them.
For the record.. the Three times I can recall holding perfection... In the order in which they occured;.....
1. I had been an avid blade collector.. knives, swords,.. well I was in a freinds house. a producer and writer,.. and beside the fireplace was a Katana... I asked if I might handle.. "yes... my father brought it back from Okinawa.. "
I had allways known that these were the best history had to offer.. had handled a few more averadge specimens in the past,. but I was not prepared for the rush I got.. this was a "Family Sword".. no Idea of the date.. but it was magnifcent. Not overly ornate.. but the most lethal device I had ever held. The weight .. balance and feel of it literally sent chills down my spine.. I drew the blade to expose only about 12" from the scabbard.. recalling the tradition that they are only to be drawn when needed (to draw blod).. I could feel the power.. and somewhere deeeeeeeep in the back of my mind.. I was aware of how easy it would be to split the producer down the middle..
It was perfection.
2. An Icecream scoop... I kid you not.. this one was in a flea market.. made of solid brass.. the handles squeeze together to send a ring across the inside of the sccop and eject the ice.. This one I could afford and still own
3. Her name was Paulette....
