Re: MY Attitude: Goodbye Canon

well i'm sure that in much less than 2 years there will a lot better for same price. However in the meantime - the focus problem on the G1 is very common, and serious.

I have mine for about three months, took about 5500 shots, and now often when I zoom all the way I get a msg in the LCD saying Lens and the camera shuts off!

I with more of the top line models out there (sony, olympus) would support the MD, its the only thing that for now has me locked into the G1.

The 995 does play nicely with the MD according to the promotional
material. However, if you ever have the need to take a
portrait-style shot above your head or below your knees you will
find that the Nikon body design won't permit you to see the LCD
easily. That was one of the frustrating things with my old CP950.

I'm planning on waiting for 2 or 3 years, then re-evaluatiing the
market. I'm sure it will be far more advanced than anything
avilable now (in the same price range), and I believe I can live
with the quirks (or defects, depending on POV) of my Iron Maiden.
