Make it solid, nobody complained about it with former cameras. It's not logical thinking. Must be a smaller problem to fix then to achieve the AF-F8 problem.
It's a technical problem. Previous models used etched focus screens, so the points could be illuminated with a more focused light from a more oblique angle. The AF points are on a transmissive LCD, and that required a more direct illumination angle with a broader light source.
You seems to know the technical aspects!! What was wrong with the former system???
Black focuspoints are much less usable then red ones in certain conditions. And that is what it's all about.
If a new system is developed, make sure it is a better one, at least as userfriendly as the former one.
