Anymore? Not exactly.

My first memory of an SLR is when a favorite uncle let me look through his camera and focus it. Something about that was wonderful.

When I was in a position (i.e. both money and time) to begin pursueing photography has a hobby, I was very disappointed to learn that the split focus screens were gone. I know that I can change the focus screen on my D90, but with the current technology, I expect that I'm better off with liveview when necessary, so I don't.
