Re: The LiveView Poll

I will buy the A700 anyway, but I would have loved to have the Live View feature. I have a Panasonic L1 and use it 80% of the time. It is so liberating not to be glued to that tiny viewhole and to see the image full frame. There is an annoying time lag on the L1 but I am sure a more modern camera could do it with fast autofocus.

I only prefer the "tunnel vision" when I am shooting in very busy street or very strong sunlight. And with hand held long lenses of courses. But if I have a tripod, again I prefer the screen.

Panasonic (and Olympus?) are introducing cameras with a swivel screen and I will certainly be getting one of those. Not just for overhead shots or macros, but also it would be nice to sometimes include myself in a scene without guessing about the composition.

Just like with a good old Canon G3.
