Maybe it's just my example or perhaps my vision (doubtful) but the focus points on my F5 are easily seen unless I'm shooting in the dark. In which case I go manual and use the focus aids. And I love the push button to turn it on/off. It is easy for me to aim,compose and shoot. The weight isn't an issue even carrying around a motocross track all day so maybe it is just me.
I want another one.....or maybe two.
