Aside: just looked at the date on the edit box and got an odd jolt of familiarity...|
Anyhoo - I bought the 350D and it is TeH Shiny*; I'm being impressed by all sorts of odd things like the AF intelligence and speed, colour balance for B&W (no that's not an oxymoron), and the flash's habit of leaping up and trying to smack you in the face every time it thinks the scene's too dark. Having read most of the manual I'm starting to understand why it has such a wide range of Idiot Modes, 'cos it's distinctly complex (although I do at least know enough about photgraphic theory to understand why I might want to use any of the functions).
Mildly amused to be back on CF cards, since that's what my first decent digicam used.
Plus it's amusing to note the things that SLRs don't do, like LCD preview (well, duh me) and video. Oh, and fit in a fag packet. Still room in my collection for the Ixus then ;)
* on recollection, I'm blaming Diva for that phrase
