So I lose one frame with the auto-advancing....
Agreed, that really is a pain. But apart from this inconvenience, I really like many of the automated features found in newer analog bodies. I shoot in Av or Tv mode most of the time, only switching to full manual when necessary. I have to admit though that I completely ignore the eye control (selecting AF point by simply looking at it) on my Elan7. It works, but I don't like it.
