    About the etrs 645,
    How do you shoot this in portrait mode if you can longer see the waist level?
    Obviously, I am just getting to learn the MF.

    Either use a prism finder, or very awkward body positioning.

    I using a hand held meter get the non-metered prism. They are quite inexpensive. Also, there is a 90 degree rotating prism that was popular with portrait photographers; is also is non-metered and is also great for low level shooting and deciding which way to frame. If needing a metered prism, the AEIII is probably the better choice as it has a spot meter option and hold ability that the AEII does not. The AEII metering is very fast and accurate so I'd expect thw same from the AEIII. I do use the WL finder more than my AEII or nonmetered prism. I do enjoy the AEII automation when just walking around and more interested in general shooting than being critical or when the subject matter or lighting is subject to moving such as wildlife photography.

    The AEIII also has much longer battery life than the AEII. But I agree, the WLF is more fun to use.

    Prism, a speed grip n a focusing lever, you will enjoy shooting an ETRS alot more.

    .
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.
