Re: DP2 Merrill handling question

I can't get my hands on one and would like to know whether the buttons at the back are rubber or hard plastic and whether they 'click' or have a firm stop. They look horrible and made of rubber. I, too, consider purchasing one if the handling is OK otherwise wait for a new model. Apologies for posting this here, perhaps not the most relevant thread, but I cannot create a new thread for some weird reason.

Build quality is something you will absolutely enjoy on the DP2M. It's a very solid build with very nice feedback buttons and dials. Nothing on the DPMs feels horrible in terms of build. They're a solid metal brick.

I wish more cameras were built to this standard.
