Funnily enough just did a video lesson with a Kelby Training photographer and he says "you don't need no freaking histogram".....you gotta think out of the box for creativity...I know I know will be howled down with this sort of statement .......:)))

Don't agree, the histogram on any camera is a valuable asset, learn to read and understand what it is telling you. Might prevent a trip back to a location for a retake.

just know what your trying to capture and try to see it before you shoot it, if you can than it makes the histogram a little irrelevant as your trying to find your view on it and not re create whats the to the T

Yes I agree it is helpful to understand the histogram but to create all images with the perfect even histogram profile is not always the best image....:)) Sorry for being somewhat frivolous as did not answer the question just putting in a two bobs worth....as you do...:))))))
