Yes, you're right Howard. The review really didn't bother me much because I never read the complete reviews and skip around. There are very many features I don't really use at all. I never use auto ISO, only shoot in aperture priority, I never found a need to bracket my shots or to rapid shoot sports with large bursts. I got along just fine for over 30 years with film bodies that didn't have those features. My interests are in picture quality, color accuracy, build quality, lens variety and compatabilty and ease of use. I do use Canon for one lens only but I really don't like Canon bodies. I don't understand why they don't work like my Nikons.
