Is there any way to unclutter the viewfinder display? I find the sheer number of icons ridiculous and distracting.

Why on earth would you not include Fujifilm here?!

How well does this camera support manual focussing and are there any issues working with manual lenses or even adapting vintage manual lenses?

And is it possible to remove the AF Start from the shutter half-press, assigning it to a separate designated button instead?

"Instead of simply saying "post the photos in a Facebook album that only friends can see" "

=> you mean "that only friends, the NSA and the GCHQ can see"

"Sadly, for those hoping to pull the flash back so it can 'bounce', to give a less harsh result, it's not possible on the G7 X. "

=> no great loss since there wouldn't be much light left anyway after 'bouncing' a flash this small. The guide number is just too low.

"Fast access to off-center focus points is key for the kinds of shots I like to take with the X100T."

Or, if there were a manual focus ring... I'd find that a LOT more important than a retro throwback pompous f stop ring which is really unnecessary in this electronic day and age.

"The camera focuses so quickly, that as I move from face to face, it refocuses on the background, before focusing on the next face."

Seriously, how is that *useful*?

I don't mean to rant but why would I want the background to come into focus during that panning shot from one face to another? Expressionist auteur style cinematic reasons excepted ;-)))

What I'd *want* is the *faces* coming onto focus as the focus of attention is shifted onto them *without* the background being focused.

This is a prime example of how autofocus (and automation in general) is overrated. You don't want to adjust your ideas to what the camera is able to achieve automatically. You want to implement your *ideas*, and the tool should mostly 'stay out of the way' so to speak.

Hold on a minute. Am I getting this right, is it NOT possible to remove the AF start from the half-press shutter button and assign it to a discrete separate button?

Frankly, how you can let yourself be disappointed by autofocus when the camera has manual focus is beyond me. Pre-focus and snap away!

A minor nitpick: Canon's first 35mm autofocus SLR was not the EOS 650 but the T80.
