The best live-view experience in DSLRs just got better with the addition of 100% accuracy view from the imaging sensor plus the no-delay version using a separate sensor. Speedy 7-fps burst capture and in-the-camera HDR, too, but still a bit expensive considering there’s no video.

Standout Spec: Live view without tears.
