I hate the tiny little buttons on my digital cameras. I especially hate that inane mode dial on the top of the camera - its functions belong in the menu system. Who after all wants to switch back and forth between manual and iauto? I yearn for the simplicity of my Pentax Spotmatic where at least the aperature is controlled by a ring on the lens. I use almost exclusively aperature priority mode. Here is how I think it should work. The camera has enough computer power to do voice recognition. I would say the command, "A" and the lens focus ring would become an aperature ring and every time you pause the twist, the camera would orally tell you the fstop setting. The command "E" would turn the focus ring into an exposure compensation ring, again with oral feedback and the command "I" would return the ring to its native usage. Also the command "O" would lock the exposure (or the focus if you had chosen that in the menu system) and "U" would unlock. Of course the ugly button controls would still have to work in case you are in a noisy environment. Also my choice of commands is just what I would use. You should be able to use the menu system to choose whatever words you want in your own voice. All this could probably be done in firmware and be downloaded into existing cameras. Maybe Olympus would have to use more system memory and make some of this downloadable aps. Now, how about a budget version of the 35-100mm m43 lens.
