    I went to check out the new Kodak Pro SLR EF mount body. It was my sole
    intention going to the exhibition at Darling Harbour. My experiences
    include:

    1) I was nearly laughed at when mentioned a Canon mount body.(the guy
    does not like the word of Canon):)
    2) Had to ask two people before someone knows what camera I was asking
    for.
    3) There were two Pro SLR/c available. One is on a guy's shoulder, he
    was busy chatting to a friend I think. Did not show the interest to
    show me the piece. I walked away after waiting aside for a while. The
    second camera is locked in a cabinet. The guy who is looking after it
    was using and showing the /n body. When I asked politely if I can check
    the /c body, he asked me how much do I want to pay before he opened up
    the cabinet and showed to me. Joke aside, I think he looked down at me
    and thought I couldn't be someone who can afford something like that
    anyway.:)
    4) I could not do a test shot, as there is no CF card in there, the
    piece will not fire without one by the look of it. I was hoping the
    body could be better designed. The shutter button is ugly, and located
    in a bad angle. The overall body build quality seems to be not as good
    as my D60. Also the focusing is some what slow in my very limited on
    hand tests.

    While expecting Pro SLR/c to be a poor man's full frame body, I was not
    impressed by the Kodak Australia's marketing people.

    Doh !

    I went there and forgot clean about the /n and got side tracked on a bunch
    of other things then left . . . .

    Interestng to hear your comments though as oddly enough I have found it does
    translate into the quality / build / price / value for money deliverable
    (the camera) they offer - and dont ask me to explain that cos I couldnt.

    Maybe you just saved me a load of dough, but oh do I pine for FF, sob, sob.
