Default 300D at Best Buy, I touched one!!!

Drove over to the local Best Buy (Melbourne, Fl) to look / touch one. They were sold out but had a floor model. First reaction--- wow it's big! My last slr was an AE-1 & this is bigger. Feels good to the hands & doesn't feel cheap, after all I'm using an Olympus 2100 UZ. I'm thinking "this feels heavy & large" what could the 10D feel like? Went to Southern Photo (in search of used lenses if I get the 300D), all were older FD lenses.

I start talking to this guy & mentioned my thoughts about the 10D size & weight. He smiles & pulls his 3 month old 10D from the bag. "Here, try it" he says!!!!! Even with the optional battery hand grip I'm thinking "This ain't heavy!!!!!!" He loves his & I'm waiting to save a little more for the 10D. Nothing wrong with the 300D, It's just that the 10D feels "right", finished, impressive. Besides, it will balance the 400mm, 5.6L that I know I will want so much better!!!!!! :mrgreen:

I got one at the Best Buy in St. Pete.

I haven't done a lot with it....going camping this weekend. So far I really like the feel and the way it works. I'm not the technical type so I don't know all that stuff but, so far so good.

Default 300D in Canada

Hi all.........

The Canon 300D is in stores in Canada today! Hooray! Selects Blacks Photography stores across the nation (I believe about 20 of them) have the cameras.

I'm very impressed by it and look forward to using it!

I'll tell you all more as I play with it more...

Yesterday, I went to Best Buy in Tulsa, OK (I live about 40 minutes north) and the sales person said that he just dold the last Digital Rebel in stock first thing that morning and did not know when the next order was coming in because each Best Buy was alloted 3 cameras. He also stated that he has had them in stock for about 2 weeks. It is being sold there as the bundle with the 18-50mm EF-S lens.
