Fortunately the DMR is working well, the batteries and the R8 are 
rebuildable, and I have enough good SD cards (thanks to the LUG) that 
replacing it is on a distant horizon.  When the time comes I'll look for:

big sensor
responsive viewfinder and shutter
color quality esp. gradation
quiet, low-vibration shutter
and most importantly plays nice with the 280 & extenders
