Review Date: Feb 5, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Picture Quality, speed, fast AF, CANON
Cons:
None that I can complain about.

So today with fear and tribulation I went to listen to the "machine gun" shutter...

What a load of bs... It is not LOUD at all IMO!

It may be a little louder than a D70 which I also reluctantly played with and which btw sounds VERY sluggish, more like a slide action shutter iso the quick snap of the 20D...

So my fear raced up by comments of a loud shutter in the newsgroups was all for nothing... The way I expected it to sound was such that it would sound like the angel of death's trumpet!

The other concern was the infamous plastic CF door...

I really do not know how ppl handle their cameras, but you have to press the @#$#@ out that grip to make that thing move/break...


Now that all that fear are out of the way, I will get mine on Monday....


Guys forget about all the negative propaganda about this camera...Go try it out for yourself...and you will probably like it (if I may quote a TV ad).

This is really as my wife said...There is and will NEVER be a perfect camera!
Give a perfect camera to someone in a NG and they WILL find a problem with it...It is the human condition.

So I am happy to say I appreciate the comments on the NGs,
but I also realise that ALL problems are not problems and some people just love to exaggerate!


So to all the "ponderers" stop pondering about all the possible problems and start filling your harddrive...

Shutter speed is noted in x/sec so let's not take x/year to decide on this camera Smile

Cheers
