    Hey, I'm just happy for the company ... LOL

    No, these guys have done great in their SONY experience and I hope they do well, as they move along. It's an endless tide of ebb & flow.

    BTW: We sent word to POTN, you were on the way over. Now, there's a bunch of fun dudes!

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    I do like the people on this forum. I've learned a lot in the last few months. I don't have anything for/against Sony or Canon. I actually wanted a D300 but I couldn't swing it with the lenses that I wanted.

    Ryan the box looks similar. I'll have to check again when I go home.
    Almost all stores here allow to return anywhere from 7 - 60 days from date of purchase. I bought the D90 with no intentions of keeping it anyway!

    I had to cheap out and get the 18-55mm IS to please the wife. She isn't too impressed as it is.
    I'm limited to one purchase a month as of today.
    So I'll be getting my next lens next month and so on.
    The lens is sharp but since it is not USM, it's pretty noisy especially during video recording.
    And gawd I hate the stupid ferris wheel on the back.....Canon should have implemented a dual mode dial like Sony or Nikon.
    The menus are a much better than the cryptic Nikon ones which is a plus. But

    wow 12 lenses next year? if only .....

    The ferris wheel (LOL) takes some time to get used to. I'd say I'm more or less used to it already. I never had a reverse thumb wheel though. I really miss the d-pad .

    But?

    But based on preliminary testing..... ISO 6400 on the D90 was more usable than the 7D.
    Could have been just me since I hadn't had the metering modes figured out when I was playing with it.

    It might be. But I doubt it. One thing to consider too is the 7D has 18 MP and the D90 has 12MP. If you resize it down, you're averaging pixels (so it looks better). The 7D is pretty unforgiving for soft lenses and incorrect focus.
