Totally amazing camera!
Finally got my new Canon EOS 10D SLR after two months of waiting. It's so popular that all the distributers are sold out.
Took some shots during the kids' swim training just to test it out. The images we totally amazing.
Here is a sample. I only added the lettering. The detail, color are original off the camera taken off in .jpeg format at a mid range resulution....so i did not max out the capabilities yet. It's a 6.3 mega pixel.
here is the detail off one shot i took from about 20 feet away with a 28-105mm

Great detail in both shots. Did you buy the camera with that lense?
I already had the lenses from a non digital Canon 28-105mm and 75-300mm, they fit like a glove.
Zsue, awesome shot on the top. Max your camera out and reproduce the shot and then blow that baby up to about 24 by 36 inches on somebodies Epson large format......... mount it on gator board with a one side lam and it will be an awesome piece for your kids room...... with a 6 megapixel according to my chart should reproduce "excellant" quality at 16" by 20"........ find a reprographics printer that has 720 by 1440 res with Genuine Fractals and it should blow up photo quality to 24 by 36 inches..........
sorry got so excited about the shot that I ran off the mouth with suggestions on how to get it on his wall......... assuming it is a male child....... anyway kewl shot. I have a website for you http://www.dpreview.com that has a very useful forum and review board and here is the one for your cam.........
Have fun. What swim stroke on the bottom pic, butterfly?
Where any of these lenses Canon FD types. I'm still using a Canon F1 and I'm thinking of going digital but I don't want to replace all my lenses.
P.S. I agree with every thing Cappy said.

The lenses are EF. We used them with our Canon EOS 500 (non digital)
Your camera supports RAW files just like the other canon cameras right? If it does then I would just save it as a RAW file. My 3.2mp jpg takes up about 2mb while the RAW takes about 2.5mb. Not only do you get higher quality, you get every little detail from date&time to shutterspeed+f-stop. You can also change the exposure, white balance, sharpness, etc. It's basically like a film. If you plan to just put your memory card in one of those kioske thingies then you haave to save it as a JPG.
BTW thats a really good camera! You must be loaded to afford that!

You'll be shooting more than Rainer now.
Any EF lens is supposed to work, any others don't have the technology to work.
Keep in mind the focal length changes on a digital SLR. so your 28-85 is more like a 38-105, etc.
I think Cappy may be more excited than you about the camera?
Man that is awesome! *runs off to trade in camera*
What kind of $ did you pay if you dont mind the nosey? Also how about a pic of the camera?
