I still have to figure out how to work it. That's gonna be rather hard to do as it is my first Digital Camera, and I have to keep it hidden from my wife, who would blow a fuse if she figured out I spent so much money today (yeah, I know - I'm whipped ).
One thing I am really interested in knowing is if you can download, in some easy to use format, like CSV, the settings for each picture. Right now that is included as comments on the file, but it's not very user friendly. Any advice?

Charles nice to see you jumped the gap. I thought you were a very demanding man? Anyway great to see I'm not the only one shooting digital anymore here (and more and more people are considering doing the same as you). Good luck with your 10D.

It was bad in Sydney initially too. The minute the 10D went on sale, some retailers were selling one every 5 minutes. Stock quickly depleted.
We've got a new batch come through and now many have available 10D's.
Apparently it is much better than supply of D60's.
Respected users.... If my replies are useful, then by all means...

Thanks for the comments guys.
Been away for a while, playing with this damned thing (not to mention studying for an International Tax Accounting exam I just got out of - what fun ). Takes a little getting used to. I have had to come up with a new organization system for my photos, which I still have not resolved completely to my satisfaction. It's also trick getting to grips with new focal length requirements because of the 1.6 multiplier - in certain places where I used to get away with 1 lens now I have to constantly swap. For some good side-on shots, I still want to get a slide, so it's a race to swap bodies (which probably need the same lens as the other body). Not to mention that I don't really want that expensive EOS 1v to be relegated to the Cellar. Digital is not all that rosy! (Then again, with my 100-400mm lens, I now have an effective 640mm lens - cool )
That said, I'm making progress. I've taken a few photos in the past few days that I think are pretty cool. The nice thing about Digital is that you are more willing to experiment - machine gun a plane taking off, for example, and see if you get a nice picture or effect - If you don't, just dump the files, they didn't cost you a cent. Not quite the case which you use Velvia!
I suppose I'll upload a few tomorrow, see how people like 'em.

i just saw your newly added ZRH photos from 7/7/03 on airliners.net. As always, great shots! I must have been right next to you unknowingly on the observation deck when you photographed the aircraft that day!! (i remember those exact planes). Where you the guy with grey hair and glasses? There were a few photographers out that time i remember!! (i was around with a camcorder and a yankees baseball hat!)
