IMO, you got a very good deal. I just ordered a new 70D (body only) for a total cost of $1,007 (including the 4% Amazon store credit). So you got the lens, extra batteries, and charger basically for free. Enjoy your new camera!

Thanks Dave.

Yes, I've noticed the 1050 body only price. ridiculous IMO. That is merely 12% off and hardly a holiday bargain. I am waiting to see if it approaches 900 which would be acceptable to me. If not I am likely to wait until next year's possible announcement of 7Dmk2.

Now Adorama has a seemingly good deal on the body, lens and a printer. Then I read several users, one a professional, say the Canon printer is an ink hog.

Took this yesterday for a death metal band. My second attempt at shooting with external flash with umbrella. We also used two other lights. I'm learning a lot.

I made few AF test and found out that AF zone is pretty tricky to handle sometimes, especially at lower distance from target, AF lock isnĀ“t precise as much as single point AF.
Have anyone else noticed this behaviour?

I haven't done any specific tests but have noticed that AF isn't precise at times using zone mode with birds. Even if the bird is stationery at the time.

exactly, i would recommend using single point AF for shooting stationary targets.

Yes I usually do, but was trying to shoot a fantail at the time and they rarely sit still, so was caught out :-)

Just spent the last 40 minutes catching up---missed a lot in the week I was gone. Many awesome images from so many!
If any are bored out of their mind here is the last of the 3 part series of where we were:
http://www.youtube.com …=UUp0JcVkBuV6MA​CgtZQxB4KA (external link)
But saw 7 eagles, some even sat forever while I uselessly pointed my little point and shoot at them. This was the kind of trip where I just don't feel comfortable taking a high dollar body and lens....usually by the time I'd get them out of the dry bag/box and those out of the hatches and me out of the kayak to do it the animal would be gone :(
That said we're going to Reelfoot lake in January just for eagles. Any thoughs suggestions would be appreciated.

Yes it is winter here but temps weren't that bad and no one had to swim.

I'd say at least $1,000, the 70D just came out and I'm sure it would still be under warranty if the original owner didn't already register it with Canon.

Will canon honor warranty without receipt.
