Aish, just ordered yesterday at BH. Probably won't see it until May, makes the kit and sell the 24-105 really tempting

Canon General / Re: What is ISO in digital terms?

I think what he meant is what does ISO actually change in the digital format.

As far as I know it has to do with the sensor, specifically increasing the gain on the sensor so measured data gets boosted to higher levels. This is why when you increase ISO on digital format you get noise because the gain is high relative to actual data on dark parts of the scene so it essentially turns almost nothing into something where as on the brighter parts there isn't as much noise because data measured there is big in relation to the gain applied (gain relative to actual measured is low/lower), basically SNR.

EOS Bodies / Re: Big 5D Mark II Price Drops in Canada & USA

Went ahead with a purchase from Canada to the US for ~$1950ish converted to USD for a brand new body. I am still amazed at people on my local craigslist not budging with prices around $2100+.

Which store/website did you use? I am not familiar with the Canadian reputable stores so I'm a bit hesitant to just randomly pick one.

Canon General / Re: Live view focus

Why do canon and nikon DSLRS focus so slowing in live view relative to mirrorless camera's like Sony NEX3?

Because of the mirror. I want to guess that the AF unit in the Canon and Nikon require the image from the mirror (hence the blackout on LCD during focus) and moving the mirror back in and out to focus and show you the image on the LCD takes time. The NEX AF is designed just to use the information from the sensor and since there isn't a mirror in place you don't have to wait.

This is of course glossing over the specific implementation of contrast AF which might contribute as well.
