> if you want to shoot RAW, you have to select it - for each frame - using the raw button. Is that true?
No, it's not true. If it were, it would have gone back immediately. I don't think I've ever shot a single frame on JPEG. I think I set the recording format as soon as I got it out of the box and have never touched it again. (Obviously I've done it twice, since my original one was replaced.)
> Do you use the viewfinder or the rear lcd to frame/focus? If you use the viewfinder, is it acceptable to you?
I do use the viewfinder some, not as much as I would prefer. It has no indicators in it whatsoever, not even AF confirmation. But oddly enough, it seems to work OK. I wasn't too optimistic when I realized that, but having used it some, I have to admit that I'm surprised.
