Hi Dirty -

Not one of your "must haves" is important to me. What I want is extreme ruggedness, weather sealing, long battery life, and superb Nikon images. Have you ever seen how PJ's (news, sports...) treat their cameras? They throw them in the trunk, shove them under car seats, constantly bang them against other bodies, knock them against solid objects... Hardly the place for the screen you think should be there.

No camera body is going to do everything you think it should! You need to study and learn the camera's system and how to get it to do what you want it to.

Really you seem to want to make a PRO camera into a rank amateur camera.

Stay safe - Dan

Sounds like a fully articulating screen would be desirable then - you can flip the screen 180 and fold it back against the camera, keeping the delicate display safe from scratches (unlike fixed or semi-articulating screens)

If you haven't bent the arms supporting the screen!
