Congratulations.

Question: Why is your keyboard with a cord?

Number pad and I don't need to take my keyboard away from the desk. Batteries are annoying.... lots of reasons really. :)

And not to mention the usb ports for card readers :)

On topic: can you see any physical differences with the prototype you tested a few months back?

A great sadness poured over my wife’s face, as she realized I would be gone all weekend.

Odd ... my wife usually smiles when she knows I'm going to be gone for awhile ...

She would have a sad look on her face, however, if I bought one of these monsters, and she found out how much it costs!

(Back on topic) That lens looks plenty freakin' big to me!

I was sitting around staring at the ceiling today, then the doorbell rang, and behold, the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x had arrived. A great sadness poured over my wife’s face, as she realized I would be gone all weekend.

Oh...I thought you were going to say, "...as she realized our checkbook was lower by enough to go on a three week multi-island trip to Hawaii."

It looks smaller than I imagined it, is that the 21" or 27"?

I want to know too.

Comparing it to the size of the keyboard, I am pretty sure it is the 21"

Perhaps as CR -1 (so jealous) or CR infinity

I don't believe one word of it? I haven't seen a cat or brick wall pic yet. Very suspicious.
