It's done...after several weeks of dithering, I'd finally bought one.



12 hours waiting for the battery to charge seems long!



What are the first things that I should do with the camera??

12 hours to chage the battery ..... should only be two.

1st thing you should do with your camer is go out, take tons of pictures and just have fun! I wouldn't worry about setting up any tests. If there is a problem with your camera, chances are you'll see signs ofit doing normal shooting and then tests of some sort might be in need.

Did a few test-shots last night and noticed that there could be some bf problems...



Did a few bird shots this morning and couldn't say that the shots were that sharp...



Did some more test-shots just now and am glad to say that the camera has the all clear...no bf at all.



In summary, I think that there must be loads of false positives doing these user-defined tests with so many variables involved: lack of experience with the camera + wobbly hands etc.



Can't wait for the weekend.

I could never get consistently accurate manual focusing. Yes, I said MANUAL focusing. At somefocal lengths the focus was okay, but at other focal lengths the focus was wayoff the mark, which made the camera mostly useless for my needs. Perhaps Igot a lemon kit lens, who knows.
