Well, the bells & whistles crowd already have the "choice " you describe, but the folks who prefer a more basic high quality alternative don't have any "choice" but to buy cameras with far more features than they want. In any event, I doubt we'll be seeing very many dslrs still going strong after ten, or twenty years the way we did with film cameras without all the extra junk.

Considering all the points presented, I am leaning in the direction of more choice. And I think I overcame the insecurity behind posting this question at the start. A flood of awareness dropped on my when I threw away guidebooks and forum suggestions and instead picked up the Nikon D7000 User Guide. In about 5 hours, it all sunk in.

I'm not very spry because of age, so most of the action options, including monster telephotos, aren't for me. But I'm attracted to a few flavors I can interject regarding focus and exposure via U1 & U2 settings. And my newly discovered favorite is MY MENU.

Very exciting. I can see blazing speed in throwing in Auto ISO for preset shutter/aperture preferences. And some less frequently used parameters for CLS linked speedlights.

The last time I was this excited is when VW/Porche switched from 6 volt to 12 volt electrical. And that was 1966.
