I went to Kamera, St Helens this afternoon and had a look at a 350D - there don't seem to be any 20Ds available. Anyway, I ended up buying the 350 D with the battery holder, so it is much better to handle. I was charged £600 for the outfit, and walked away with it. I also bought two 512 Mb Sandisk Ultra ll cards at £39.99 each. Hope I've done the right thing. The alternative was to wait for the 30 D and pay an extra £450. The battery is on charge so I'll have a play around later, and bring myself up to the mark after reading the manual.
