So.... my 10D will no longer focus. Auto or manually...

I noticed some problems during my shoot Sunday. Saturday it was fine... Today it sort of froze, clicked and died. No more focus - with any of my lenses... Canon or SIgma. Calling Canon tomorrow. Guess I should have bought a back up sooner. I was planning to wait and see what Canon releases next, but I guess I'll be picking up a 20D this week and sending the 10D off to be repaired...

With my luck, they will release a full frame 12 megapixel camera for $2000 next month.

*laughs* Yeah, I saw that a minute or two later.

Full frame is a mixed blessing for me; it gives me 'longer' lenses and better macro, but, of course, means that I need shorter lenses to shoot at 'normal' focal lengths. There're a few reasons that I'm excited about this new camera, mostly because it's got better performance in a few things that're important to me. I won't be buying one until it comes down in price a little, though. *grin*

I'd bet it only comes down a few hundred bucks though. I think Canon is establishing certain price points and adding/discontinuing cameras in order to fill the spaces - for instance, they didn't just lower the price on the 10D when the 20D came out, it was just gone. This new one creates a whole new spot in the lineup, which is good... but I think it will hold its ground price-wise. Just my prediction...
