The EX camera has three settings with the fish-eye being just one of them.  The other two are a normal view and a downward view.  I am very impressed with it.

Probably me being lazy then as I tend to use the default wide view or the downward view and have not really looked at the middle option

Don't be too disappointed Dayjo, there are other options regarding reversing cameras. Although not quite as slick as the integrated unit of the EX, stand-alone systems with a monitor built into a replacement interior mirror are available. These appear to work well and look far better than an additional screen on the dash. Probably worth getting a specialist to supply and fit a quality system to avoid damage to your new car.

One disadvantage of the built-in system in the EX is the fish-eye lens which gives  a wide field of view but makes objects look much further away than they really are. Most after-market units have a lens which gives a truer perspective albeit with a narrower field of view.

I saw this red one at Listers this week, just off the transporter. Looks great and I think that you and your Navigator would be very happy. I think that by Monday afternoon my branch of Listers had sold three Sports since the launch on Saturday

 I fitted a reversing camera to my present Jazz, a year ago....... https://clubjazz.org/forum/index.php?topic=9023.msg47526#msg475

I would rather have the Honda version......

And, the paddles.......

That looks a good solution. Although the Honda version is to be preferred, given its non availability with the sport at present, would you do the same thing again?

Agree about the paddles - they do come in handy from time to time!

You guessed then! Yes I was the second of the three Sport sales I mentioned. The first was a pre-order and arrived on the Friday and went out to the customer on the Saturday. The third was a customer with a Nissan Note who went on a 30min test drive in a SE CVT. He liked the car but felt that something was not quite right but he could not put his finger on it. The salesperson, bearing in mind the feedback I gave from my test drive, suggested that this customer also drive the sport CVT. Less than  5 minutes into this second test drive he had decided to order one!

As for mine I got a good deal including an additional discount for February delivery (which suited me very well), nothing like that offered by New Car Discount, but  I am happy to support my local dealer.  I felt that overall the benefits of the Sport Navi outweighed the features I would loose compared to the EX.  Anyway I confirmed the order Monday am, car arrived at Listers Wednesday and I will collect on Thursday 22nd. It could have been earlier but this was the first available day when both myself and OH could be there.
