Even if we take the technical possibilities of 1979 into account some things could have been made better:
- why going back to cloth shutter with the X700? With a further development of the XD7 shutter 1/2000 would have been possible
- why not placing a mask with shutter speeds in front of the metering LEDs in the viewfinder so that one can see the selected shutter speeds in the dark?
- selective AND average metering was technical possible - but more expensive.

Although I like the XD7 and the X700 they are sometimes a limitation.
