    I think its had enough FW upgrades that we should call it the 25D.

    Actually I really like this FW stuff. Developers put the critical
    (bug-prone) functionality in FW achieving a couple of things:
    - Faster time to market (at expense of bugs in the field)
    - Customer performs the repair with a few clicks

    I must be a second-class registsrant. It takes them about ten days to
    get to my name.

    Thanks again, Brian.

    What you say is true however, as a registered owner of Canon cameras, my
    experience is that these 'automatic' emails show up weeks rather than days
    (or hours) after new FW availability.

    So, this firmware for the XT is just bug fixes? Sounds like it addresses
    the underexposure issues which is nice but I'd like to see them change the
    ISO, Metering, WB, AF, and Set buttons so you don't need to hit the Set
    button to make the new setting stick.

  15. So, this firmware for the XT is just bug fixes? Sounds like it addresses
    Definitely. And then have the B&W LCD screen show whatever your most-recent
    setting change was. Of course, what I'd *really* like to have it show is

    I was just looking at that screen; hard to tell how much of it is
    dot-addressable (vs pre-screened bits & pieces, which would make it
    less-likely you could reprogram it for other info and have it look decent).

    I really think displays should be user configurable. What some people find
    irrelevant others may see as the most-important thing they want to see. You
    shouldn't have to think like the camera... there should be more adaptability
    so the camera can seem to think like you.
