    Again, just get an EOS RT for $70: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Canon-EOS-RT...item2c610bd226. Well worth your money if you shoot macro that often.

    It's not macro/close up work I do. Mostly urban landscape/architectural. The fixed mirror thing always kind of bothered me as a concept. Wouldn't there be some sort of adverse effect on image quality?

    A great example of user-unfriendly design and narrow engineering point of view. Why an electronic mirror lockup, when a mechanical would be better?

    So they could write "Ultra-Cybernetic Electronic Precision Mirror Raising - UCPMR" in their advertising brochures.

    I think some posters here would claim that would make the MLU more "accurate": a mechanical implementation not being accurate enough to be useful....

    For the EOS-1V - and other similar cameras, MLU has to be a deliberate effort as you have to be aware of the dangers when using it. In the manual it states the following.
    • In very bright light such as at the beach or ski ground on a sunny day, take the picture promptly after mirror lockup.
    • During mirror lockup, do not point the camera lens at the sun. The sun’s heat can scorch and damage the shutter curtains.

    Right. I never fail to lockup the mirror when I am outside taking pictures. Not being able to compose or focus ads that little extra fillip of excitement I so crave.

    MLU is a deliberate effort on any camera having it that I have ever seen. Deliberate does not have to be inconvenient or frustrating. MLU doesn't need a warning light, or a beeper either. It's faily easy to notice.

    I always like the MLU on Canons since you can combine it with the self timer and even bracketing and it all works automatically. My only concern was forgetting to turn it off, invariably ending up trying to stand still looking into a black finder for the 2 or 10 seconds while the self timer does its thing.

    Electronic and manual MLU processes individually have their strengths and weaknesses, apples and oranges. I don't think it's worth carping and whinging just because a Canon has an electronic MLU. Goodness, it's a bit shallow compared to the capabilities of the camera that grow on you.

    AN UPGRADE

    Too bad the film slr market died before that illustrious day.

    I don't own any of the newest Digi offerings from Canon but the menu option lives on into the II series Canon Digis.
    No upgrade ever came, as you noted...the digital EOS cameras don't have easy to use mirror lockup either.
