Unfortunately, as we have all come to grips with, there is no perfect camera. I suspect that the manufacturers always leave in ONE design flaw to make people upgrade to the newer model, and then that camera also has ONE design flaw. Neat little business they have. I suspect you're either going to have to live w/ your camera's one problem, or get another model (which will surely have a separate problem). You can see how people can amass a drawer full of cameras and still have none that are "just right". After a while, good enough is where it's at.
