This is my first DSLR! From 87 until 2003 I was a SLR guy and I loved my cameras.
The digital age came and I put down my camera and was unhappy with point and shoots generally... but suffered through my first canon SD and then got excited about my second that shot 720p video... then i wanted to take pictures for real... my buddy sold me this and there were 3 things I miss but can live without.
1)Live view on the LCD
Still a solid camera and god did I miss this form factor.
