I think it's funny how the demand for the black body has pushed the price of the silver body down by about $50 in some online shops. I don't care either way so I was able to order the silver body w/o lense from pc Connection for $850. I ended up getting the Sigma 18-125 lense and Canon's 50mm f1.8 lense seperately.

Now I must wait patiently for it to get here! *bites nails*

Canon 350D now available in the UK - just purchased one from Jessops - charged battery and powered it up - Err 99 - manual says this is a general error. Back to Jessops who tried everything to get it to work then exchanged it for another. Took this one home - charged battery - powered up and guess what ! - menu system kept freezing and no beep when autofocus was set. Back to Jessops who again tried everything to get it to work then exchanged it for another.

I am now on my third new camera and so far this is working Ok.

Have also bought the battery grip and this is superb - even has an adapter for 6 AA batteries.

Has anyone else heard of any problems with the 350D or am I just unlucky ?

I kept getting an err05 when trying to use a Canon 28-135 IS USM. Never bothered to look it up, just switched lenses and kept shooting. Both are gone now... waiting on a black version.
