I agree with most of the problems. I also would like that the magnifying in view mode does it incrementally, instead of magnifying so much that I immediately have to zoom out.

Also, zooming focus for manual AF needs two button, first the dedicated button (down dial or C3, in my case), then the center dial to set the magnification point. It would be much better magnification to happen just at once where you left it, then you can use the cursor to move the view.

The reflections on the sensor is something I'm not sure can be fixed in firmware, but it is *TRULY* embarrasing to release such a high profile camera producing that UGLY reflections with light points when near the frame edge.

I use the AF/MF button is faster and more practical specially when using the EVF and it's a one button only workflow. That function is not being use anyway since your MF. I leave the rest of the C buttons for other things.
