Was it Auto WB, or Auto Exposure that kept "jumping"?

well this is my gripe about canon, there isn't a cam that has more features than the d7000 in their mid range line, so far all we have from canon is a 60d and now the 600d, so i feel the closet thing would be the 7d.
im wandering if many canon owners who have budget-mid slrs actually decided to switch to nikon d7000 due its many features.
strange a scam site is using https? thought that was meant to be secure version of http?
the only upside of this natural disaster will actually be long-term economic recovery for Japan, not the other way around ... but that's pretty much the only silver lining.
prayers and well-wishes for all the people affected by this horrible event in Japan
Why couldnt we format CF cards in something thats not FAT32......
QuoteDo you honestly think they will let the 5D go almost 5 years without a refresh?
Five years would be Sept. 2013.
1DV soon, 7DII in the fall, and 5DIII next spring.
You heard it here first .
I was ready to buy the 430EX but decided on the 580EX I (used) and added the 580EX II subsequently. I'm glad I did go this route. The differences for me that made me decide on the 580 are the guide number/power of the 580EX's and using them with umbrellas, no white bounce card in the 430EX, AF assist for the 430EX is 9 pt and 45 pt for the 580EX and recycle time is much faster with the 580EX. I would consider a used 580EX I rather than the 430EX II. The weight of the 580EX I is similar to the weight of the 430EX II.
I doubt if I'd buy a kit with a 24-70 unless it was discounted enough that I could resell it to subsidize the cost of the body. I've come to prefer primes to zooms, and f/2.8 is not as fast as I often need in dark venues. I returned my 70-200mm f/2.8 MK II for that reason.
I'm guessing $2000-$2200 for one with IS, but it might be a couple of hundred less. Price does not seem to matter, buyers line up to get the latest lenses and backlogs run several months before the pipeline gets full. Then, when all the early adopters have one, the price will drop 10%.
However, I'm certain that many will buy one and love it, I am burned out after having five of the existing 24-70mm L's that were only fair.
They may get released at the same time (would be nice), but the 24-70 is too expensive, and too specialized to be a kit lens.
Actually, the local Nikon (Taiwan) did release a D700 kit which came with the Nikon 24-70:
So I won't be surprised if an upcoming 5D3 would appear with the 24-70L II
