Sure, but how good is its call quality, and can I play Angry Birds for very long without running the battery down?

Price of canon gear....
I hope that we all realize that one of the reasons for price increases is that the dollar yen exchange rate has changed from about 110 in 2008 To about 80 now. That's about a thirty percent change, thus gear is more expensive for us.
What do you think if i buy this two lenses for my future trips in neotropical rainforest.
Canon lenses 300mm F/4 L IS for mammals, birds and some of snake species and the 100 F/2.8 L IS for snakes and frogs, one on a 40D body and the other one on a 7D Body...
I hope for a new version of the 300mm F/4 L IS this year but it seems unlikely.
I wonder why Canon sales are much, much higher than Nikon's?
I see Nikon using Sony sensors, and Sony itself is using its new sensors in its new well-received bodies, and I read people discussing how the Canon sensors seem to be falling behind.First you need to get your facts straight.
1. Canon uses sensors from Sony, and they make sensors as well
2. Nikon designs and subcontracts sensors (not by Sony). They also buy sensors from Sony.
Should Canon and Nikon stop making sensors and eliminate all competition that Sony has and remove any reason for improving products?
I believe competition is good.
Without 2 sensor sizes and 2 different mounts
FF and APS-C (I was talking about if they eliminate EF-S)EF-S Lenses: The fact that EF-S won't physically fit onto the FF bodies helps keep the lines separate, and preserves the perception/illusion that the a gi-normous price difference is fully justified.
APS-C cameras without EF-S mounts. EF-S mounts came 5 years after APS-C and have only been around for 8 years. EF lens have been around for about 30 yearsThey would have to make decent affordable super-telephoto EF lenses that were not "L" lenses or else the competition would murder them.
There are no decent APS-C telephotos now (No, but my point was if they suddenly stopped making the crop body, they would have to make up the length in better, longer glass for cheap prices. Sorry-I may have blurred my minor point about EF-S glass into my main point, which is about the value of crop body cameras.)
Put me down for crop frame cameras being a future oddity from digital's beginning. Sure sensors will get better, and some will get smaller but i would think that larger will always be better in many ways, except price. And that's why they were made, so people could actually afford a dslr. And the high end ef-s lenses desings are pushing forward! that's sillly. Besides it's not like crop frame cameras are exactly small little pocket models, that's what mirrorless and cell phone are for. I've got an old 1/2 frame 35mm film camera perhaps from the 60's, i can't recall. One day the 1.6 crop dslr will sit next to it on my shelf.
hopefully, the school will have some of the lighting, microphones, audio recorders, tripods, video heads, etc, but wait and see. Odds are that a beginner level video tripod and head will eat up $500.
Yeesh, that's what I was looking at. I worked as a production assistant a couple years ago and fell in love with glidetracks. I really want to get one, but I don't know what kind of video head it requires. I was probably going to chat with some B&H guys tomorrow.
Thanks for the feedback, everyone. It is so greatly appreciated. So from the sounds of it, maybe I should hold off for the new STM 18-135mm? Does anyone know when that is hitting the market?
That's kind of what I thought a prime was...a lens with a low aperture and fixed range. I thought there was something far more special to it, though.
