Re: The LiveView Poll

The first time I see a Canon user holding his camera at arms length with his 400mm Is lens, I'll probably die laughing.

Thought experiment: Canon & Nikon didn't put LV on their new cameras. Sony did => lots of jokes from Canikon types about another useless Minolta gimick for the kids; Sony has no intention of producing cameras for 'real' photographers, no real pro would use somethig a goofy as LV on a DSLR. (just like they did with the film 7's big LCD screen, and most other Minolta innovations).

At least now that Canikon did it, we'll get to listen to the pros explain how they couldn't live without it. Setting a new standard, the world will change again.

LV makes sense when they get the visual quality & speed of the LV close to that of an OVF, and make it articulated, and get rid of the prism and mirror and design lenses for a closer sensor spacing (so you can hold it at arms length).
