Re: Day 2 with my Silver X20 - Quirky little thing ain't she...

Good idea to compile a list, though I wonder if Fuji is listening. Anyway, my list of operational (as opposed to image quality, which is another thing altogether) issues. Here's what needs to be added:

- a focus area box equivalent to infinity focus in OVF whenever OVF is selected and camera is on. (Ideally, the camera would also focus on that area, too, rather than some other area of its own choosing, as it is now. Yes, this could be done. It needn't be on by default. But it would be nice to be able to tell it what to focus on, rather than the general direction of what to focus on. Focus and parallax are two different things, which Fuji ought to recognize.) Yes, there would be a *slight* parallax issue at fairly close distances. We use the LCD for those. And with an 85 percent finder, the outside-the-finder slop would take care of the rest.

- the ability to review pictures in the LCD after shooting with the OVF. This was possible (though not good, in that the only option that hung around long enough to be useful was "Zoom [continuous]" while a full display that doesn't disappear after either 0.5 or 1.5 seconds would be much better) with the X10, but with the X20 we're expected to deplete our batteries with that silly eyeball recognition thing.
