Beautiful little girl, Vossie. Love the image of her walking away in those boots!

LOL and not the most suitable car for outdoor photography with it's 4 inch ground clearance . I keep saying I'm going to buy an old beat up Jeep or something as a third car so I can get to the places I'd really like to shoot that don't have paved roads.
The worst so far was when I brought home my current car which was a somewhat extravagant purchase. I ended up saying it was her birthday present knowing full well that she'd never drive it. She was all excited but as I thought - a few days of dealing with two seats, limited trunk space, and really harsh suspension took care of her desire to drive the car. It's been my 'daily driver' ever since
So, I've tried to have a lens free year this year...
... I'd really like to see lossy and reduced DNG as a raw option in Canon cameras. While they are still de-Bayer'd, they are much, much better than Canon's mraw and sraw, for multiple reasons.
I don't like to print less than 300PPI.
And prefer even 540PPI if I can get it.
They already been de-Bayered into a weird format with some info even beyond just resolution lost and you are stuck with their quick and dirty de-bayer and scale.
I bought it in 2004 (before EF-s) as a normal zoom for my 10D. I thought I'd love it when I got my 5D, but time had intervened. To get a wide-angle on the 10D (again, before EF-s) I had purchased a Sigma 15mm fisheye. Well, the fish is on my 5D perhaps 100 times as much as the 17-40L. When I need a normal zoom, I use the 24-105 on the 5D and the crop camera (now a 20D) is used primarily with the 70-200. Once in a great while I'll use the 17-40L. It's still a great lens with great optics and great handling and AF. It's just that I like all my other options better.
Any hints you could offer on the best settings for scanning different types of media (B&W prints vs colour prints vs newspaper clippings vs book pages etc) would be much appreciated. I'll do some experimenting of my own, but some advice to point me in the right direction might save some time. I'd be especially interested in the reasoning behind the various settings. I will do some Googling, but there's no substitute for (your) experience.
