I seriously doubt it's an intentional info blackout. It is the one concern people seem to vocalize the most here. My bet is with the same sensor as the 3 and the same power as the 300, it'll fall somewhere in the middle of the two. I'm also fairly certain this question will be answered sooner than later.
"A dust removal shaker is also incorporated into the D700 - which in my opinion is an almost worthless feature as it does the same as all others does - shake the dust off the sensor. But where does the dust go - it stays inside the body and a few shots later, you can see it again, right? In my opinion, a simple blower is the easiest way to get rid of dust, but an incorporated dust shaker is a nice marketing feature!"
This has always been my feeling toward the dust remover. I would rather have the 100% viewfinder than the dust remover. Is there a way of removing the device and get 100% viewfinder?
