A suggestion: let's wait until we've actually *used* the M7 before we
dismiss its new features as useless...

But that would suggest that one should buy it to discover if the features
are useful...Seems like quite a waste of money if one knows there are
certain features one doesn't want.

I, for one, can say that I don't need AE for $400.

On the other hand, if the supposed new flash is as described, and will only
work with the new body, that is a different matter entirely. But I'm
guessing that it will be backward compatible with the M6TTL.

Of course at this point, we don't know what features it does or doesn't
