I love how you can really manually dial in focus since the lens is 'focus by wire', but it takes a lot of turns to get from one end of the focal distance to the other (about 4 big ones)...would be sweet if it was speed adaptive manual focus...if I turn really fast, it moves farther, if I turn slow, it moves less - similar to a feature added to computer mice years ago.
How about improved "B" (Manual exposure, "Bulb") functionality? As it is, "B" is limited to "about four minutes" (according to the manual) and you need to keep your finger on the shutter the whole time. That's lame if you want to do long night exposures.
Here's my recommendation:
- B mode: as is (no change)
- B2 mode (new). Click the shutter button to open the shutter. Shutter stays open until you click the button again. No upper limit; shutter stays open until button is clicked or battery fails, whichever comes first.
How about this being done correctly ? One press off the shutter results
in the image being recorded in sequence from the same shot. Or is the processing power required too limited.
I would like a "reset" buttons combination. So everything goes back to basics settings i already customized. That way i won't forget that i'm at iso 800, jpegs large and flash white balance when i go outside after taking some pictures inside the house. With "reset", camera sets to iso 100, raw and auto white balance or whatever someone likes.
I have perhaps missed this in one of the set-up menus, but the option of MF assist when using old lenses that do not communicate to the camera would be great. Could be triggered by pressing the shutter button half-way.
