    Lockups still being reported with the new firmware.

    See http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/index.asp do a search on the left
    under Forums on 20D

    Also being reported in the dpreview Canon forum.

    Looks like it's still not fixed. Oh, well --------

    I had no lockups with 1.0.2 and have had none with 1.0.5.

    So there may be some combo of things making lockups more likely.

    Or some number of cameras may have non-firmware issues. The number
    reported is MUCH smaller than it was prior to 1.0.5

    The initial problem, IIRC, was upgrading with no lens attached. Perhaps
    that is still the issue under some circumstances.

    Error 99, and battery grip contacts have nothing to do with the
    earlier lock-up issue. When it happens, it is often associated with
    dirty lens contacts, or battery (grip) connections. It is NOT the
    earlier lock-up that required temporary removal of the battery. Just
    switch the camera off, clean the contacts, and switch on again.

    I'm not saying that there are no issues, but this is not related to
    the 1.0.5 firmware fix.

    Same here, and a little more research also reveals threads like:

    Looks like you wanted to make a point, which is...?

    The point is that Canon still has unresolved problems. If you read
    the posts from folks that have had the problem with 1.0.5 you will see
    that failures have occurred under conditions that may not be caused by
    what you mentioned. Most folks cleared the problem by removing the
    battery according to what they posted so it MAY still be a problem in
    the same area.

    In any case, the 20D should not be locking up at all.

    Having said that I will be ordering one as an upgrade from my D60,
    been waiting to see what happens with this problem.

    No connection with Sigma. Sorry, I can't help you with a discount.
    The facts are that the problems have not been resolved with the 20D.

    I thank you for the definition of FUDster.

    FYI, a quick search of all news groups using your email address
    returned the following -

    "Results 1 - 100 of about 1,620 English messages for "
    "."

    Yahoo only returns 500, too bad I couldn't read them all ;-)

    Get a life, you may be the record holder for posts, 1,620 in four news
    groups -

    Since one good definition deserves another here is on that apparently
    applies to you based on all those news group posts -

    flamage

    /flay'm*j/ n. [very common] Flaming verbiage, esp.
    high-noise, low-signal postings to Usenet or other electronic
    fora. Often in the phrase `the usual flamage'. `Flaming' is the
    act itself; `flamage' the content.

    High noise, low signal is a good description for your posts.
