I'm a big fan of Dell's U series panels. Great value. Very happy with the 27 inch U2711, also have the U3011 which often is there at promotion pricing, plus a couple of U2410.

I took advantage of the great prices that were available for a new body and upgraded to the 5dmk2. Now I find myself with only the 50 1.4 & 70-200 f4 non-IS that actually work with my body.
I tend to use the wide range much more than tele (definitely getting the 17-40L) but recently (after renting the 135L for a week) it was so sharp it really inspired me to start shooting people i.e. portrait, and candid shots. Never really had much of a desire to do so before, and now it's something I would like to learn and develop a much stronger skill for.
When I see a human holding the G1X, I realise what a large camera it is. Comparing it on camerasize.com, I realised that it isn't much different in size to the Leica M9!
Street price is NEVER the same as recommended.$600 sounds about right.
I think this camera will fail, the fuji X10 lens is a full stop faster at the wide end and 2 full stops faster at the long end! not to mention its smaller, and the fuji looks retro
I can't believe nobody said the obvious ones:
-custom Low and High limits on Auto-ISO.
-More than 2EV for bracket shooting.
-More than three shots for bracket shooting.
-Prioritize Auto-ISO vs shutter in Av and Auto-ISO vs aperture in Tv (i.e. first play the iso within a range, then move the shutter speed or aperture depending on mode). In particular, variable light in sports could use this feature.
-Block delete of images.
-ExFAT support. May be even some other nice filesystems for the CF cards?
-When doing LiveView Zoom, focus to zoomed part.
-Voice notes for picture. Voice Notes and Tag notes for picture sets.
-Be able to program a straight button for mirror lock up, for example.
-Do time lapse with bracket shots.
All those, and everything that MagicLantern does could be very easily added in firmware. Let's not focus only on the f/8 issue (which might not be doable by firmware).
is IS that important on a lens of this size? I mean its not like you are going to be shooting it handheld so its always going to be on a tripod etc so you would turn IS off anyway.
