    Hi Q.G.

    In this mode the mirror is not staying up when you wind on. It's not behaving like any camera with a true lockup where the mirror stays out of the mirror-box during operation (eg. single digit F-Nikons). It goes half way down and flips up again (as does the 500 EL-series in AS btw.). I know you have a 2000. Take it out, try it and you'll see!

    Hallo Stefan!

    So let's continue the fun!

    You are utterly and completely wrong.
    The mirror does stay up when you wind on.
    It is behaving like any camera with true lock up (in fact, it is one of the few that offers true lock up), staying out of the mirror box. Not moving at all, in fact.
    It does not go half down to flip up again (in the ELs, by the way, it comes down completely before flipping up again).

    If you have 2000-series cameras, i suggest you try them , and if they indeed behave like you describe, i suggest you take them to Ulrich in a hurry and have'm fixed!
    (Seriously!)

    You are right. I am wrong. You never disappoint me in this regard. How could I forget that? The 500 El's mirror is prefering whereas the 2000 has a true lockup.
