Is anyone using the 5r? I'm in possession of one (however temporarily) and can't find the display screen that has the meter on it. I found the histogram, but you can't use that and the level at the same time.
I was looking forward to using this camera because of the addition of the nav wheel, but after thirty minutes of menu diving and a thorough reading of the manual, in which it's pointed out that the nav wheel and multi-d pad control aperture and shutter depending on which shooting mode you're in but failing to point out which mode has them set which way, I figured out that shutter priority moves the shutter speed to the nav dial. Otherwise, it's aperture. Why are we not allowed to control that assignment? Ridiculous. I also seem to remember the 5n buttons being much more configurable. On the r, you can assign certain menu-driven items like shooting mode, AF mode, metering mode to the function button, and on the lower soft key, you can assign one of a few functions (like MF assist). Maybe I'm just remembering the customization nightmare of setting up the 7, but I thought the 5n was pretty flexible too. The r needs a firmware fix. Or do I have to buy an app?
That said, the files are just as great as those from the 5n. Unfortunately, being just as great, adding a wheel but dictating how it gets used, flaky wifi, and removing options doesn't make for much of an upgrade.
