Just saw in the Manual that it has built in support for the Eye-Fi card- that is going to be very handy for my studio shoots!

Haven't read the whole manual, but the section on AEB starting on page 170 only talks about 3 shots - can't find any references to 5 or 7?

Edit: Just found it on Page 316. It says auto bracketing can be set to 2,5, or 7 instead of the usual 3 shots. Would have been nice to have a footnote to that in the main AEB section :)

Going to have to spend some time learning the new AF system and the AI Servo AF characteristics and parameters... little confusing coming from the 40D :D

Very detailed info on what the AF system will do with all EF lenses. Looks very good!! Can't wait to get mine.

Yes, it will take you some time to really take advantage of it. I went from 40D to 7D and it was quite a lot to digest AF wise. Looking over the manual though I am pretty ramped up already on the 5D now. You are REALLY going to like all the new AF controls with servo mode. Has made a huge difference in my soccer and BIF shots with the 7D.

It's interesting how the autofocus points vary lens by lens and how they need an A-H groups to categorize them all; it's not just the aperture that matters. For example, the 24-70L only gets 1 dual cross type point instead of all 5 even though it has a f2.8 aperture...

I am reading that section now. I'm sure this is going to be a hot topic once people discover this section. hmmmm...

Minor point, but why the heck does Canon have to put that stupid copy on every page? It isn't like the manual itself will be a best seller.


I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
