Yeah. Why can't it be always set until you turn it off? That would have
made more sense to me, but on the other hand, I often leave the mirror up
way too often, and for a second I think my camera is broken, or the battery
is dead, until I realize what I've done. Anybody else have that happen? Hit
the shutter release, mirror goes up, camera goes dead, and you are ready to
cuss a blue streak and remember the lever is set the "wrong" way?
