This would also allow for free camera rotation without anything being sacrificed at all.
But we don't yet know if the game is going to be 3D. As you've seen over in the engine thread there are a whole lot of possibilities. I can't see them ruling out 2D at this point. So I voted for iso, even though a movable camera wouldn't bother me as long as it was done better than NWN2. What worries me about the NWN2 camera, even the improved MoTB one is that it I know I don't like it, but I can't figure out why. I don't know what went wrong with it. So that makes me nervous about a camera like that. I would definitely support zooming though. Changing the distance between the (normally) isometric camera and the party.
