This is a very good camera - IF you do traditional shooting. For me, I do a lot of "from the hip" picture taking of things that after the "automatic" part of the camera does it's range finding and auto focusing, is too late to get the shot I wanted. Is there a way to disable this stuff? (And have it stay off when I turn it off and then back on.) I miss my old camera (another brand, now discontinued now) that I could depend on for such things.
