Well I got my new camera, and in less than 24 hours I've sent it back (well, I will have when the couriers arrive). It was a Canon EOS 50D, and it was quite simply not good enough. More of this on the forum before too long. In the meantime if anyone has got any suggestions for a suitable alternative I'd love to hear them. But hurry, because I don't plan on hanging around getting a new one ;-)

For the record this shot was taken with the old 400D, which works when tethered but not independently.

      I don't have any camera for tell ''I'm disappointed or i'm glad'', but if a pro like you said it was disappointing, then i believe :)

      Everything I want I can't afford. Other then the fact that I think my camera is the best compact camera ever, I have no suggestions. :) Good luck to you though.

      Sorry you're having a bad experience with your camera. I like your funeral song request - sounds like you acknowledge the "Sender."

      I'm sorry to hear about your disappointment, Jon. I hope you get something soon. You might want to consider the semi-pro Pentax if you don't mind the whole lens-buying thing again... Looking forward to reading about it in the forum.

      Well Jon just recently I had a chat and during it somebody told the 7 D price is falling down nearly daily. So he told me that the kit is now available already by 1200 € and the body under 1000
