I like to keep both hands on my camera, left under the lens and right on the grip. I hate that lock button on top. Maybe I'll look into remapping. Thanks for the hint.

No one is reading the article. It states that the only phone camera that trumps old point and shoots is the Nokia 808, which has an enormous sensor.Yes, I've read it. But, how is the Nokia at AF, what about CA's, how fast is the shutter, and how does the onboard flash compare, what about distortion? DXO is one dimensional. Just like only looking at the center resolution of the 85mm f/1.8 lens and its suddenly the best.
The new 24-70 II is making me re-think my 'primes only' theory. It is sharp end to end, fast and puts a vote of confidence in every shot. I had it with me yesterday while out with a grey sky. Had a Lee Big Stopper filter on the front so the attached shot is a bit degraded.Its all relative. I'd call that good light. Its trying to catch dancers when the lights are very dim at 1/320 sec that the rubber meets the road. I'm not confident that my 5D MK III will be that good at ISO 12800. Exposure will have to be perfect. Shooting sports in a dimly lit stadium is still 4 stops better than I see.
Softness, particularly at the edges and 70mm.It sounds like it will be a very good lens. Some are reporting issues at the long end, so I'd check that out.
I'm waiting for the eventual price drop to decide if I'll get one. By then,there will be a lot of feedback from users.
You get an idea of how big a polar bears head is.Yes, that might be the largest I've seen, and I've seen several.
Sigh... typical.While its not a issue for us do to the NR setting, I do look to see how many exposures are remaining on my card. I change the card when there are too few left to be able to get thru the next few minutes without having the card run out and missing a critical shot.
Tell ya what.... I don't look at the gosh-darn number in the display.
Instead, I try to know the nature of the beat (the camera), as if it were an extension of me.
In that manner of familiarity, I just know I'm going to get a lot, or just a few frames, depending on how things were set.
I don't have a 7D, but I have had a 350D and 400D, and a 5DmkII... each has their own unique personality.
I may be geting a 7D soon... have not decided yet on which to get. So, its nice to know there is an "issue", but its not a deal breaker for me. Every camera has issues.....
