EQUIPPED WITH MOVABLE FOCUS/ZOOM GEAR
When the focus/zoom dial is pulled out, the gear inside the housing will move outward  allowing for lenses with  large diameters to be easily mounted.
 
AF-ON LEVER LOCK SYSTEM
In addition to the standard controls, the AF Start lever may also be used for focus lock. Utilize the Focus Lock feature to allows yourself to concentrate on releasing the shutter at that crucial moment.
 
MAIN DIALS ARE EQUIPPED WITH DAMPERS (SPRINGS)
The main dial, the quick control dial and diopter adjustment dial have a damper (spring) to provide secure operation. (Controls on the cameras will not slip because of the damper).
 
ADJUSTABLE SHUTTER SENSITIVITY
The shutter sensitivity can be adjusted by changing the location of the adjust plate.
 
THREE ERGONOMICALLY IMPROVED LEVERS
A new design for the shutter lever, the AF mode lever, the AF-ON lever, and the movie-record lever has improved the levers ergonomic shape.
 
DIOPTER ADJUSTMENT DIAL
The camera's diopter adjustment dial can be operated from the housing.
