A tool is a tool. You use it to your advantage and you adjust to its  
needs. My cameras require "recharging" every 36 frames and you don't  
see me belly aching about it. The reason to use a DMR is because you  
find its advantages important to way you shoot. Specs mean absolutely  
nothing, its only the way it improves your ability to capture what  
you see that counts.

I use M cameras. Spec for spec they are outmoded pieces of over- 
engineered and overpriced crap. However, they fit my way of seeing  
perfectly. I have practiced and practiced so that I do not have to  
think about the mudane: exposure, focusing or framing. They have  
become an extension of my eye and, most importantly, they do not get  
in my way.
