xconverge was nice enough to overnight my new goods to me so that I could have them in time for this weekend. I think the total shipment time was around 16 hours. Big box of goods: What's inside? Initial impressions - this camera is stout. It feels like a lot more time went into it's design than my 30d. The ergonomics are great and everything is easy to get to. The grip is sculpted to fit the lines of the camera body, not just flat the way it was with my Canon. All in all I am very happy that I made the switch. Now, I just have to go and take pictures.
