Hi, Asher,

Just what does that mean in this context?

I might conjecture that, in parallel to the unfortunate locution "100% crop", it means a pixel-for-pixel rendering on the display screen from the sensor. But of course there are a number of other possible interpretations.

The camera is a delight to hold and it simply feels so well suited to deliberate photography. That's what it's for, not for sports, just for a slow plodding creative person with a mind for making images.
Yes, I can well understand that sort of pleasure. It is a "lovely thing".

Best regards,
