My new toy came yesterday... My *istD and D-BG1... I love it already. The 1.8" LCD doesn't bother me at all. I love the extra weight, the AF system is way faster than the DL. I really like being able to select different points to AF so when taking pics of the neice and nephew I can AF on faces, but not cut off feet. I like having everything at the push of one button vs using menus, but I would rather have a menu than use the mode knob to select ISO and WB. But I can live with it. The AWB is not the most accurate in the world, but that's what MWB is for, right? The pentaprism viewfinder also makes a HUGE difference. I am really enjoying this camera and I have only had it for a matter of a day. Thanks to everyone who helped me decide.
