I am migrating to using the new Storage Client Library for my Azure Table Storage.

Querying with the previous Storage Client Library 1.7 namespace:

var orders = serviceContext
                 .Where(e => e.PartitionKey == partitionKey && e.RowKey == rowKey)

Querying with the new Storage Client Library 2.0 classes:

string partitionKeyFilter = TableQuery.GenerateFilterCondition("PartitionKey", QueryComparisons.Equal, partitionKey);
string rowKeyFilter = TableQuery.GenerateFilterCondition("RowKey", QueryComparisons.Equal, rowKey);
string combinedFilter = TableQuery.CombineFilters(partitionKeyFilter, TableOperators.And, rowKeyFilter);

var query = new TableQuery<Order>().Where(combinedFilter);
var orders = table.ExecuteQuery<Order>(query);

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but 1.7 is cleaner, uses strongly-typed entities, implements the IQueryable interface and utilizes the full power of LINQ. Version 2.0 makes me feel like I'm working with ADO.NET Datasets again.

Am I completely missing the plot here? I understand that there have been major performance improvements, but version 2.0 feels like a downgrade of an API.

Why isn't there a IQueryable<T> interface for 2.0?

Storage Client Library 2.0 - Why is the API not as intuitive to use as 1.7?
