Interesting that the black-out time changes to 86 ms with the EN-EL4/A or AA batteries. So I wasn't imagining things when I thought the camera felt "faster" in general operation.

I got to here and was wondering how in the world making the camera bigger helps make the camera more portable? I like my MB-D10 grips, but I'd wager they really meant "functionality" or something. I know they mentioned making it easier to grip for smaller hands, but the translation's really iffy here...

I think they meant portability based on overall size of the camera and grip compared to past efforts like the D200. Watanabe goes on to mention this portability on page 2. A slimmer grip, remmoval of the "smokestack" for easier transport of the grip off camera, etc.

Maybe they mean portable as in porting into different types of applications.

Say like a video game is ported into PS3 and Wii...

Your new avatar scares me Julio. It does look like the MB-D10 is going to be ported over to the D700.
