As for surfers... I used the 1DmkIV last Nov at the ASP Rip Curl in SF.  The 10 FPS bursts were pretty cool :).  Take a look if you like (www.jmhpics.com).  [... puts link to site ... expects noobs to flame him ... don't care  :)]

Loved the photos, especially the dog chasing the ball across the beach.  :)

FWIW, Vistek in Calgary yesterday stated that the earliest they could deliver was mid to late April.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III Brief Specs? [CR1]

It's well-understood (or at least widely reported) that P&S sales account for vastly more sales and profits than DSLR's, even with much lower profit margin

I love how people state assumptions as facts.  I have this old cheat sheet of phrase translations for scientific writing; a couple of those phrases apply here:

Blah, blah, blah. There you go with your fancy facts and logic again. This is the INTERNET, man, get with it! You're supposed to win an argument by talking over the other fellow- completely ignoring his more salient points while demanding that he respond to each and every one of yours. Then you escalate. With each round- raise your voice, use CAPS and lots of exclamation points until you're shouting him down and questioning his intellect/parentage/genetic fitness. From there you transition into obscure and absurd threats. Tell him that you've traced his IP and that you intend to track him down and kick his scrawny ass!!

Geez, do I really have to spell EVERYTHING out to you?!!!

new left-handed camera.  Apologies if anyone finds that argument too sinister.   ::)
only those who are maladroit...     (argh, argh)

More smites for this?!  C'mon guys- sinister is latin for left-handed, maladroit is a commonly-borrowed french term for the same attribute. Sheesh, have a sense of humour...  :(

Maybe it'd be appropriate to ask the administrators about the level of customization that they can implement. If the code that supports the site is an off-the-shelf package there might not be options beyond karma/no karma.

 ??? This is all I've posted this week and I've collected 3 more minuses... It's the Heinz Doofenshmirtz avatar, isn't it? Three more smites and I'll have to think about switching over to a more positive image...

Awesome!  But you forgot:

Question 11:  Why does every $100 cellphone, kids game and even television set have BUILT-IN Wifi, GPS, can-opener and shoe-polisher, yet a $7000 camera has only limited, expensive,  clunky, one-at-a-time add-ons?

Answer 11:  You are obviously not a serious photographer.
Answer 11a: You are obviously an Apple fanbois.
Answer 11b: How dare you question Canon? 27 Smites for you!

here's a plus to help balance you out... ;D

Karma Karma Karma Chameleon it comes and goes, from where who know oh oh ohs
must...resist...temptation...to...smite!!  :P

LOL.... +1 for the Karma Chameleon

Yeah, I gave him a +1 for that too but received  +1/-2.   From this valuable Karmic feedback I deduce that most CR posters are also Culture Club fans and that I must never, ever speak ill of Boy George on these pages. :o

Henry's has stock available for $1999.99 CDN. At today's rate that would work out to $1962 US.
