Yes, great ergonomics! And very, very nice weight. I had 2 ST's and a S2 60 years, with a full bag of primes and the 70-200/f4. The RTSIII was a little too heavy for me.. But each and every body, with their great reputations for sturdiness, build quality and whatnnot, managed to break down at every awkward moment. The repair costs I had with these bloody things! And then, the STs were my workhorses for weddings and invariably one of them (no, not always the same one) would suddenly stop working and you had to take out all the batteries before it would do anything again. Soooo nice in the middle of a wedding ceremony when you're working with primes... I never bonded with the Nikon D70, but for these jobs it was a total blessing, it never ever let me down.

So, yes, I love my digi stuff, even tho it's a bit light weight.

Ciao,

Jeanette
