Sounds good...I thought face recognition also made sure faces didn't end up to dim.

Funny how this buying process worked out. I started with my mind set on buying a Canon 650 ...then saw the Oly 560...then the Fuji and Panasonic....finally caught an eye of what the Rebel XTi could do so the SLR world grabbed me and finally decided to go with the Pentax!
Nice evolution
