Mine arrived yesterday. Took it out to Queen Elizabeth Park, a local flower garden, there's a lot to like about the camera!

Many of the pictures however are soft, lacking the sharpness that I had expected. I may have to play around with the settings more.

Got mine about a week ago. What a great camera. The new AF system is fantastic

DKIMAK If you go in to custom settings and bump the sharpness up by one point, that should do the trick.

There are some neat video tutorials on the cannon learning center web site also.

Don't bump the sharpness up more than one point. It is plenty sharp in raw with only one point, so long as you aren't using DPP.
I tried bumping it up by two points, just as a test and it appeared over processed.
