Wow. I don't think the 7000 is nearly that bad. I'll fess up: I've not read the manual. I've referred to it a couple times, but, for the most part I've managed to piece things together just using the camera.

I did get a copy of Thom's book a couple weeks ago, but that's 9 months into using the camera. I've read bits and pieces of it, but haven't read that cover-to-cover.

One thing I've noticed: I went from using the camera on daily basis for quite some time, call it 6 months, to sporadic use, then to a period when I didn't look at the camera for close to 1 month.

After that 1 month "layoff", I felt like I had to start all over again, in some respect. Familiarity was gone.

However, as I started using the camera again, I'm starting to appreciate how to better control the camera, and I'm rethinking a lot of my approach. I've cleared out all custom control assignments, and am starting "out of the box", so to speak. This re-thinking process has been good for me.

I've started to appreciate, I think, that there is an intuitive layout, an intuitive presentation. More and more, the camera just makes sense to me.

In my opinion, that's good technology: it just gets out of the way, enables me to better do the task at hand, and I don't have to focus on it.

But then again, I'm not a robe-donning priest. I'm just an another idiot on the internet, spewing my opinion for Google to index as it sees fit.
