Hey JustinSoong, welcome to APUG. Regarding the FA. To each their own. Lots of people love them. I purchased it for my wife, she used it maybe twice. I tried it out, to complex. One of the reasons I hate shooting my DSLR is sometimes I have to have the manual to do something simple. But I need it for business.
Never have these problems with the F3HP, my favorite, or F2, or changing brands and types, Lecia, or medium format, large format. One of my favorite motto's, KISS, keep it simple stupid.
