Jason -- What I take from your last two sentences is that maybe we need to adjust our style and techniques. I agree. For decades, only a few pros sported motor drives for sports. The rest of us developed "fast thumbs." Or in the case of my start in photojournalism, got good at replacing a slide in a film holder, pulling it out and turning it over or snatching another one from a bag, and then pulling a dark slide for the next shot!
But I can see where we may think there are no JOAT cameras in some ways. It seems Nikon has gone backward in some areas while forging far ahead in others. Is there a chance they are trying to answer too many wishes?
