Re: The novice argument is a red herring

But that is the whole point. A sophisticated system for sophisticated users wouldn't leave off bracketing, live histogram, no turn off of image review, no mode dial, no quick menu....

Ironically though, without those features, the sophisticated user is more able to adapt to the cameras capabilities than is the hypothetical novice, these limitations make it even more likely that the camera is suitable for sophisticated users who know their way around exposure compensation, spot metering and such like.

Bracketing and histograms are luxuries, not necessities.

I like the V1 and am enjoying using it but both sets of users are left wanting something more in certain areas (functionality).
