In fact, the reports from the early receivers of the camera is making me want to receive mine all the more. The reports have been very good indeed...
Check out the PBase link, there's a full-size picture of a woman face shot @ ISO 1600 with incredible details :shock:

Thanks for that link NHL. I've been looking at the posts up on dpreview but I hadn't seen those pictures. The ISO 1600 shots show that it is just plain usable. Reports I've seen have also stated that the ISO 3200 is not too bad and easily cleaned up with NeatImage.

I'm just looking forward to being able to use ISO 800 without giving it a second thought. This is going to be great.

I've seen conflicting reports on the 17-85 IS lens I'll be getting. There have been complaints from tests with pre-production versions about PF and CA. OTOH, Luminous Landscape and Dpreview both like the lens. I guess I'll just have to see for myself.

What do you suppose my first picture is going to be? I'll guarantee you that it's not going to be a picture of the box it was shipped in... :roll:

i bet it'll be of your living room, or wherever you open it, maybe your wife...

i dunno...it won't be long after you open the box and charge the battery!

Already will have battery charged and ready for shooting. I have tried to talk the wife to pose for some nude shots. She told me to leave and take pictures of flowers instead. I think she still would look good after 36 years of marriage.

The 20D arrived and have taken a few sample photos

It is a super camera and it is very fast.

Geoffs,
Where are you getting your 20D with IS lens in Oregon?
(I have one on order at Advance Camera)

Lee, I'm sorry that I didn't see your original message! I will be picking up my 20D with IS lens tomorrow (Saturday). They have arrived at both Pro Photo Supply on NW 19th Street in Portland and at the Shutterbug stores.
