I'm the owner of a new A700, after having hit some limitations on the A300, as well as some things I just didn't like...

Am I right in assuming that the A700 has no live histogram to assist with exposure? I can't seem to find it anywhere, and the only reference the manual gives is to looking at one in playback mode (not helpful for shooting).

I've gotten quite used to the histogram from the H5, R1 and A300 and found it to be very useful as a backup to double check and make sure I haven't forgotten to set something up correctly (I like shooting in full manual 95% of the time). Lacking the live preview of the aforementioned cameras (which I own all of), it seems an even more important feature to have, not leave off.

Am I missing something here?
