Well, I couldn't wait for my 30D to get repaired so I picked up a 40D and took it out this morning. These are straight from the camera - no processing (other than RAW conversion and cropping).

Glad all worked out for you, Jim, nothing too shabby about these for the first day out with a new camera. Great detail in the light areas especially, metering seems to be excellent. One question, do you take your equipment directly to Canon, Calgary to get it fixed? If so what sort of results have you had with that method? Thanks. Again, glad you found yourself a rig, looks like a winner.

Thanks everyone - especially Norm for all of his advice and the offer to loan me a body.

Norm - I've taken cameras to Canon in Calgaryin the past - very friendly and efficient. A few years back I took my rebel in for a focusing screen problem. They fixed it, cleaned it up, tested it and upgraded the firmware. Top notch service. Also, it only took a few days to get it back. My problem this time will be dealing with my credit card insurance. Their paper work will make this at least a four week affair.

Cheers.

Jim

Thanks Keith

I was using a Canon 500 F4 lens which I picked up a couple of months ago.
