If there's a 200/2 on offer I'm sure you'd make an exception... :p

I hated the MKIII, returned several.

I spent this weekend with my MKIV. Complain, squawk, cry, all you all want. Trust RG, pixel peep, etc, etc, ect ...whatever. This camera rocks. 2000+ shots at wide aperture, ISO 6400+, fast AF tracking..... perfect.

Read this: MKIV focus training (external link)

Unless you own an MKIV, and have read the link above, posting here with concerns, suggestions or comments might seem a bit "uneducated" ;) I have been shooting for 30 years....I read that document and learned a lot.

Read it. Apply it....and post some pictures.

Tracking a gymnast on Vault is impossible. I have tried for 8 years with various gear....I have pre-focused on certain spots on the vault for years just to get a crack at it . Tracking would never cut cut it.

I did several full tracking sequences and this is the last of a four sequential shot series tracking a Vault runner ( all four perfectly focused) ....straight form the camera and no PP except for a DPP run.

I'll post more,but from what I see....learn a little and shoot as a professional and this camera will kick the crap out of anything Nikon.

Personally? I could sell this camera and go to Nikon tomorrow. Economically, it is fairly easy to digest. I have owned Nikon for along time......but after today? No way....this is excellent. YMMV,

So I guess you like it.;)

I think there's an "Updates" or similar command from the help menu within CS4.

Start CS4, Help Menu - 7th or 8th down in that menu is Updates. It will auto install all the available updates.
