    I have been able to afford to upgrade to the 10D. The CP5700 is a great
    camera (in my view) for the money. Downside is low light focus (which can
    be worked around) and in my case I needed to get to at least 600mm for
    birdphotography. With the teleconverter I was around 480mm which wasn't
    quite enough for my needs. I would recommend it highly as a complete
    package for those that don't need long lens. I have used it for macro work
    and found it to be fantastic. I had been using a pentax z-10 for years and
    loved that but when I put a 300mm lens on it with a 2x teleconverter it was
    to slow. Same autofocus issues. However, I am sure that would not have
    been the case if I could have afforded good prime lenses. In all the CP5700
    gave better results by miles than my Pentax with the beauty of being
    digital. I have a canon i950 printer and it and the Nikon turned out
    fantastic 8 x 10's (don't know how fade resistant etc as the shots are no
    older than 3 months) on Canon paper using Canon inks. Mate has the Fuji 602
    and I have found the Nikon to better across the board.
