Ah, wasn't aware of that. What a shame. Thanks for the info.

Great to see there's progress there. This particular one is not of great interest to me, but hopefully it will pave the way for other improvements (aperture change whilst in live view on the D7000!!)

I don't think we'll ever see Aperture Change in LiveView, though. Someone who had a good look at the hardware of the D7000 said it is physically unable to do it - the same motor that drives the aperture is used to flip the mirror. The new bodies corrected it by having separate motors.

What might be possible is some way to quickly flip the mirror up and down to change the Aperture without getting out of LV. Not perfect, but it's something.

If they add Exposure Meter and (correct) Exposure preview in LV I'll be happy, already.
