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 ?

Several XT owners have experienced front or rear focus problems with some lenses and quite a high amount of hot/dead pixels....which is exactly why i am getting my 350D from Jessops....they are price matching the kit for £635
