i will be visiting Rotterdam on Saturday (Zoo). time to introduce the 1dx to the animals :)

Damn, last time I went around Blijdorp all I had was a 7D and 70-300 non-L (wish I'd at least had the 70-300 L that I have now). Got a 100/2.8 Macro? My missus had to drag me outta the butterfly house kicking and screaming...

btw I really really love the (owners manual page 174 & 322 feature), finally we have, spot metering on selected af point

Didn't the 1D and 1Ds already have spot-linked metering? (my EOS-3 has it, but it's limited to only 11 of the 45 AF points)

btw which shops would you recommend in nl (Rotterdam)?

Fotokonijnenberg.nl is just up in Den Haag, Tram 6 (i think) 3 stops from Centraal. It was just about the cheapest on the continent when I bought my kit a few years ago, although some prices don't look so good these days. Can't beat the service though, and they'll let you try out and play around with anything.
Also, there's a camera shop somewhere near Rotterdam Centraal, walk through all the construction sites (is it finished yet?) and turn right, it's on a fairly main road (i'll think of the name soon)
edit: found it http://www.cameraprofessional.nl/ it's on Weena just before the RandstadRail office. Didn't show up on Google maps, but I found it on street-view and got the website from their window (isn't technology great?). I didn't buy anything from them so don't know how cheap they are, but the guys sounded like they knew their stuff.

Too much gear, too little space.

This sucks, brand new 1Dx and getting Err 01 with one of my lenses 24-105mm that I got sometime ago wit 5d mark ii kit, all other lenses are ok, just this one. But if I take this lens with other camera I am fine, no problems. I did try to clean the lense connectors but no luck. What should I do? Somehow only 1Dx does not play nice with this lens. :((((
