The F717 is better than most, since it's f/2.4 at the long end. But it's not
"fast focusing" by midrange film SLR or dSLR standards.
The E-20 and F717 are the best at ISO 400. Except for one painful exception
(D7), all the consumer cameras are quite good at their lowest ISO setting.
It's only at the higher ISO settings that consumer cameras get funky.
Correctly exposed low-ISO images from consumer dcams can be gorgeous.
It's fine at it's lowest ISO setting.
Yes, this is exactly right: the dSLRs are a lot better in every way. (Well,
except size and price<g>.)
