    I think this is because the screen is too large to put the eye sensor.

I don't find a 6 step process just to change ISO to be very intuitive

    1. Press info button to switch on the screen
    2. Press the info button again to access the "quick menu"
    3. Play with the directional pad to scroll to the ISO setting
    4. Press the ok button to access the ISO setting control
    5. Scroll down to the ISO you want
    6. Press ok to lock in the new ISO speed

    With the Canons, you press the ISO button, scroll through with the directional pad or the dial, and then press ok. Much more intuitive. For the higher level Nikons, hold down the ISO button, turn the dial, and you're set. Such questionable design decisions should not be tolerated from Nikon engineers, imo.
    If you frequently use ISO, you can set the Fn button for ISO instead of timedelay trigger.

    I recently upgraded from the D5k to the D7k.
    D5k is a beautiful camera and I loved it to bits. It was mostly the lack of BIM that convinced me to change and I decided to go to the D7k rather than the same sensor with BIM (D90). Love this camera and there's still a lot of functions and options that I am still learning. It adds dimensions to your photography, but I still do miss the swivel screen and simplistic controls of D5k. It's a fun camera to use, and I believe the D5.1k is carrying on in that tradition.

    The "HDR" function was already almost present in the D5k as bracketting with 3 shots. It's just been made a bit more automatic.
    If this camera had launched two months earlier, I would have had even more trouble convincing myself to buy a D7k although I would have anyway.

    Yes, it is what I did. But there are some people who may use the timer mode a lot.

    Sounds like a great value just for the body only. Getting one when it arrives in SG.
