My one will be $4500 US when it lands in South Africa :-(

Don't be stressed, we're being thoroughly taken for a ride in the UK as well :lol:

I can't wait for mine, I'm going to try shooting it for a while without my 580EX II. Many situations (museums and indoor playgrounds) I have nothing to bounce my 580EX II off and direct doesn't work all that well.

I was just at my local shop in San Jose, CA and they said they got 12 of them in yesterday and sold them all and they were expecting 12 more today that will go on sale immediately.

Never in my life has it been more difficult to prevent my hand from grabbing my credit card...

I have no concerns about the sharpness I am getting in the RAW files. I don't use canon jpg out of the camera so whatever noise reduction they do in processing is irrelevant to me.

If you are familiar with AF on the 7D then this is a quick adjustment. Just a couple of more options to add to the mix.

Somewhat disappointed I am only showing 11 frames in burst with a 600x cf card.

Metering *seems* to be better than my 7D. It could be my imagination so I would have to test side by side to verify.

Jason, the math on your exposure times doesn't make sense. :P Or am I just tired? Good detail in the feathers either way. :)

It's a copy and paste from the EXIF on flickr is all I know.

So 11 images on burst. I'm interested in this and how long it takes to clear the buffer. That's about what I get with my 1Ds3 and was hoping this would improve upon that in some respect... I wonder of UDMA 6 or 7 cards make a difference or what speed becomes irrelevant with this camera in terms of CF and SD performance?

why? How is it done?
On the T2i I have there were designated buttons for it, and then used the keypad to move left/right/up/down. I thought it was similar for other cameras? :(
