I have used it for about 2 years (got it right after it came out). I made a mistake of being in a bad tripod (low end, cheap stuff) and moved to an RRS TVC24L. Now, I find that it satisfies almost all my needs and more. In fact, it is a lot for me and I am learning new things every time I use it. I know that it is not for high speed photography (sports etc). Since I am in landscape, it was fine. I did some whale watching with it in Monterey and it was superb with a 70-200mm. It looks like I can live with it for about 10 years without problems (unless it breaks down or I exceed 200k shots). Wonder if any of you feel that there is a great need to have a "greater" camera than this. I agree that that I am not in video and it does not have 4k etc. Also, it does not support the newer SD cards UHS-II. Any thoughts on this?
