I just new I and anyone who bought the 6 should have waited for the review to warn us of this crappy camera. I thought I was having fun, looking at colorful almost noise free images. My fingers lied to me, they told me I was changing settings with ease but no I was supposed to go through the menu's instead of that pesky Fn button that have the majority of the settings I use. All this time has gone by without pressing that video button by accident, those two guys were right I did miss having that button ruin a shot or my being able to scratch the inside of my thumb, it tickled. The touch screen, now there's a major deal breaker. I mean, I missed my big fat oily finger prints on that screen, you know the nostalgia, remembering how a screen looked at Best Buy. Throw in Wi-Fi and a couple of bucks for apps let alone there will not be an upgraded 6 for quite awhile, no rumors of a 6fu is darn depressing. Thanks you two silly heads for the bad news, as soon as I get off the toilet seat I'm chucking that piece of junk.

Good post!

But, to be fair to DPReview, I agree with them about the menus being a bit..... unfriendly to say the least.

One other thing that bothers me a bit (but have never seen anyone mentioning it -so maybe it's just me) is that the back wheel is a bit too.. 'sensitive'. It isn't rare that while changing shutter speed with it I accidently *press* it making another menu appear. I wish it was a bit stiffer.

Other than that, GREAT little camera. Even the 16-50mm PZ isn't as bad as many people make it seem like.
