Then you don't know the R8. You have to use one to appreciate it. No amount
of playing in a camera store will tell you anything about a camera, any
camera. The R8 is an advanced piece of hardware. Tough as nails, and
extremely accurate. Big, yes, but it's worth it to get that wonderful
viewfinder, smooth action, and feature set that only lacks (in some
people's opinions) AF. And a motor. But that's temporary. :-) Should be out
by the time the R10 arrives.
