    And a shutter like a sledgehammer. The echo of thin, weak plastic
    shell.

    Rich, I followed the link you provided and watched the videos. I even
    visited the Camera Labs website and read the full review. Funny thing,
    I could not find a single reference to "BAD build", "shutter like a
    sledgehammer" or "echo of thin, weak plastic shell."

    It appears to me as if you are attributing those comments to Gordon
    Laing. And unless I missed something, he never made them. If thist is
    the case, your article is inaccurate and misleading.

    You won't get much echo from a "thin weak plastic shell", it will absorb
    sound by flexing with it; you will get an echo from ridged things like:
    mountains, concrete, solid metal.

    I watched the video and the XTi had the quietest shutter of the three tested
    units.

    Rich,
    Quit reading about this and that.
    Do as we all seem to do: ENJOY!
    You know, Canon, Nikon, Sony and others have all pluses and minuses, but the
    real deal is to own any one of them and take pictures! At that, they're all
    pretty good. They'll let you take back souvenirs of trips, events, and
    whatever, regardless of their "plasticity", sledgehammer shutter sound...
    ;-)
    Take care.

    I'd have to disagree. I've heard all of them, the Canon and Sony are
    the roughest and noisiest.

    I strongly recommend reading this for all of us who think that equipment
    specifications are the end all and be all of photography (or just about
    anything else for that matter).
