Re: The LiveView Poll

I am afraid yes, lack of a life view feature will hurt sales.

Personally I don't care about life view; actually I prefer a D-SLR camera without it. Life view tends to increase noise and makes the camera's mechanics more complex, i. e. more expensive and more failure-prone. I do see life view can be useful at times but I feel it still wouldn't outweigh the disadvantages overall. A high-quality, large-magnification optical viewfinder and a fine (not too bright) focusing screen are WAY more important in a D-SLR than life view.

Still, many uninformed customers will want life view so commercially the A-700 will most likely take a back seat within its class ... at least this will probably mean low street prices.

Regards,
Olaf
