DPReview, in its list of who would buy this camera, left out an ever expanding group:  people who want to downsize the load they have.  Not to over use the term, but in fact, it was the Baby Boom generation that built the DSLR camera industry.  The boomers were at the place where they had plenty of disposable income at the time DSLR's became a consumer product.  They bought and bought all the new stuff, the big white lenses, carbon fiber tripods, flashes, and all the other stuff.  Now, ten ...

After about 300 shots, the ...
