No, if they'd done that then I'd not have believed it, partly because I'm aware of how little influence overseas branches of Japanese companies actually have. Partly because, writing software myself, I realise that giving a schedule when you aren't contractually obliged to is complete madness!
I made 4 points to them
1. no focus confirmation in OVF - so you can't really manually focus
they acknowledged this as a fact and a limitation
2. Macro mode switching off when you review an image
they acknowledged this and said they were asking for a firmware fix
3. focus point size resetting if you swap from OVF to EVF
they also acknowledged this and said they were asking for a firmware fix
4. Parallax problem with AF on OVF at less than 10ft
They acknowledged this as a fact and a limitation.
These were the main points I brought up - I'm aware of all the other bugs/issues, but these were the ones which I found irritating.
Somehow, when someone acknowledges and apologises for something . . . . it doesn't really matter anymore. Like you, I can live with these issues.
Still haven't decided though
David, don't sweat ISO 1000. That ain't even a slight challenge.
I just got a box of prints back from the X100.
Most were 11x14 paper size but 6 were 16x20's.
All were done at high ISO. 1250 up to 6400.
I was amazed!
Needless to say, I don't need any other camera...
Hi Don - well, we all have sleeping partners, my current snoozer is my A900 - but I guess it'll gradually come back to life!Well Jono. Beings that I'm in Philly, the Deardorffs are sleeping gently.
I would only use them if I get a craving for Platinum Prints again... not likely...
