    Surprisingly two things happened that I have never seen before.

    1/ I was able to get service in Harvey Norman. Partly due to the fact that
    centre management advertised 9pm closing and it was in fact 7pm.

    2/ All the major Xmas-gift digital cameras were in one place. ALL OF THEM.

    Because of part-1 I was able to investigate part-2.



    Apparently Canon is telling HN driods that .............

    * 300D can not accept EF lenses - they have to be EF-S

    * istD can only be bought with 2 sigma lenses. I think it was the 14-1400
    and the Electron Microscope / Hubble attachment.

    Apart from that ............

    * The 10D has a magnessium body, so if you drop it then it will be more
    solid. The 300D might not be as well off. Hmmm .... dropping a digital
    camera.....hmmmm ... last I heard plastic bounces even if it does crack and
    dent.

    In conclusion
    ==========

    The "big fat black bitch" 10D, the really amazing "feel" of the istD and the
    "crappy feel" of the 300D were complete figments of the imagination. This is
    all self-promotion for the sake of blowing the money. If you need a good
    reason to buy a DLSR camera .... try using Photography as the motivation.

    All this CRAP I have been hearing about feel and look was rubbish.

    In fact I was (world first) impressed with the focus system on the Canon
    300D. In the poor light it did a good job - and for the price it was very
    competitive with the Sony high-end stuff that i seem to like so much.
