Re: D80 Feel: Questions

My use of trade off wasn t derogatory the trade off is space to fit it all on the body.

My main gripe with the 70 &50 was with the viewfinders . I spend a lot of time looking thru viewfinders and I like it big and contrasty if I can get it !

That last flick of the eye all around the edge of the frame in case something/ someone has come into the shot...... The bigger the better. It s the main human camera "interface". buttons you can re- learn and that "muscle memory" can take a while to go ! The on off is the opposite to what I m used to so I keep switching it off ! The viewfinder to me is everything....

Oh yeah the elephant story...The 200 2.8 I had on the front was never quite the same again..
it s hard to get "built in " hoods circular again ! So Canon told me.
You ll like the 80 when you see the pics it can take.
