Ordered Saturday from Abes of Maine. Got it today at 1pm. They did try their BS sales call trying to convince me I needed to buy a battery from them or I would not be able to use the camera. I wonder how many people fall for that. Battery is charging now...this thing just feels awesome!

Re: Battery
I've always bought a second battery for my bodies.

How long before we see a soft image thread from the OP - only joking.

make sure to read the manual and understand the CF's.

Enjoy
