    too bloody true!

    search google 'nikon lens comptibility chart filetype:pdf' - download the masses
    of pages which show which body will be knackered by firing the shutter with
    which lens (or vicea versa) and you'll soon see how compatible everything is!

    me, I like the loyalty Pentax has shown with all but the MZ-50 body (dog) able
    to accept and shoot with all lenses.

    The new Magnesium bodies MZ-S looks like a killer camera too, but ouch! Pro
    Pentax glass prices ain't for the fain't hearted!!


    ho baby, I missed you writing this..

    yay Pentax :)

    costs about an extra $100

    1. stainless lens mount instead of plastic

    2. diopter adjustment on viewfinder (only matters once you are past 40!)

    3. 2.5 frames/sec instead of 1.5 for motor drive

    4. illuminated focus points (useful)

    3. new cosmetics and control layout, which I like on paper but haven't
    tried in the hand yet. It now has the LCD display on the back and it is
    much bigger - easier to read for me.

    I looked at the EOS 300 2yrs ago, but rejected it because of 1,2 above
    plus I was not keen on the film prewind system (which does have the good
    point that prevents ruining pictures if you accidentally open the back,
    but I was used to the old way). I spent the extra for an EOS 30 then but
    I might still buy a 300V as a back-up body so I looked at the specs.

    have a look at Canons site for the specs and brochures

    Damn, looks like i got sucked in by the marketing, although i've never
    really looked into the consumer bodies.

    Cheers,
