So on with my new aquisition... while I was over at WHSmiths I thought i'd pop into Jessops to ogle the Canons and annoy the assistants by nagging for price matches... everyone know Jessops hate discounting and I love winding them up! So anyway I has having a fiddle with a Canon 40D and asked if they' price-match the cheapest online price i'd seen... and they said YES!!! My jaw dropped and even though I hadn't intended to buy (i was just out for the giggle) I couldn't really say no! So with the help of my flexible friend I'm now a 2 camera household! And I have to say it's awesome... Combined with my lovely 'L' it's rugged, sharp, oh so fast to focus and a joy to use. It has THE most satisfying clunk when you hit the shutter. In love again i'm afraid!!!
Took these quick shots to test him out, the metering is so much more accurate (inc spot metering - yay!).
