spontaneousservices: Camera looks like it has it all, and it almost does. OMG!!! And the looks aren't too shabby either. It's just two things short of perfect: a tilt / swivel screen (i'm now used to one and don't look forward to having to do without one), and a dedicated ISO wheel. Why on earth are these designers still stuck in the last century when it comes to setting the signal amplification? As if you're changing rolls of film. Really. Why isn't it treated like it is: the third exposure parameter, together with aperture and speed. So we have an aperture ring on the lens (great!), a shutter wheel op the top plate (fantastic!) but for ISO: press button -> look at screen -> turn wheel-> press button -> re-enter the outside world. I've been asking this 6 years ago, and am really disheartened to still have to bring it up. Oh well. Maybe wait for the X-E2.

Why not just program the camera's function button to control the ISO when turning the wheel? Seems like a good solution to that problem.
