I thought this as I started using my Fuji GSW690. If you want a camera with absolutely no frills that's the one. It was rather liberating only having to worry about 3 things on the camera, shutter, aperture, and focus. I keep thinking I am missing something when I take the shot.
That basically describes how I use my a900 and, to a lesser degree, the NEX-7, where I do take advantage of focus peaking and digital zooming to focus. You have to pay for the frills on new cameras (X Pro 1 included, with its fancy hybrid VF) but nothing forces you to use them. Full manual mode is there for a reason.
