Hi---just wanted to add something. I want to try to be an encouragement. I have heard from a few people lately, who like myself, have just purchased this camera or the 10d and have been frustrated by the outcome of their shots. The first day I used this camera, all but one shot was blurry. Today, all were in focus and correctly exposed. I have gotten my camera out EVERY SINGLE DAY since I bought it, and have fiddled with it and practiced using it. This really is an excellent camera, and I wanted to let you all know it is possible to get the pictures you want with use and practice. I am feeling so much better about my purchase, when a week ago I was suffering from buyer's remorse. I hope those of you in my same situation have found a way to work with your cameras and come to a happy place with them! #189789
