I, for one, am disappointed in the camera. I was still hoping for a flagship model, constructed along the lines of the 1D series. As one who works on the ocean for a significant part of the year, I need a camera that's pretty robust and able to ward off a lot of spray and salt. My experience has shown that, unless it's a 1D model, all the claims about it being weather sealed... well, they just don't hold water.
And I've never been impressed with that top dial either, going back to the days of the A2. (I broke at least two.) Nor do I wish for a model that needs a battery grip if I want to get off more than five or six hundred shots. Times being what they are, when even consumer cameras can shoot at ISOs of 25600 and beyond, it would be nice if the range went beyond 6400. And, I kind of like the way the controls on the 1Ds are layed out....
