Can' buy a spare battery anywhere in UK, and I've tried everywhere over the past 2 months. Canon please get production/distribution sorted. No built in flash (this may turn out to be a plus point later).

Hello all (first post)

I bought the Canon Eos 5D mark II in late December 2008.
This is my first full frame camera.
I love the weigh and comfortable feel.

I'm a newcomber to digital SLR cameras yet this is my fourth D-SLR in 2 years having previously owned a Pentax istDL, Pentax K10D, Canon Eos 40D.
This is the one I will be using over the next few years, if not longer.
I sat down the other day with the manual in one hand and the camera in the other and as I read the manual I played with the camera.
Press this button, rotate the dial etc.. I learnt a lot about the functions/settings.
I can now alter the shutter speed, the aperture, the iso etc.. in a few seconds, this would of taken me several minutes previously.
I was like a kid with a new toy.

Tip:
Read the manual and check out and try all the functions/settings etc..
