    Incredible prices of Canon lenses. They just get more expensive everytime they launch something new.

    Default What I hate most about my system...

    ... is that it's too perfect, so no more excuse to upgrade.

    The Flash system.

    Nikon and Minolta have both been using distance to calculate their flash output during auto-mode....don't see why Canon can't copy them since all Canon lens (post AFD era) can feedback distance information back to the Camera.

    After all......AF-S, SSW, VR were copied from Canon rite? (yeah yeah...I know Canon did not invent them either but the patent was theirs )

    ok before this thread goes into a wishlist parody, let me clarify (somewhat) lor:

    what is your biggest gripe about your current system, and tradeoffs you CHOSE over something else in the market.

    just curious, if u did find anything missing...

    for streetshooter a minor query... do u miss the wide angle? or do u have a film body for that?

    own a fuji S602Z.
    been waiting for a hard underwater housing... and no one seems to be manufacturing it.. damn damn damn

    fyi i tried my friend's fuji 6900 with a IKE DS 50 substrobe and ttl slave sensor and it is

    SWEEEEETTTTT

    i was thinking since the S602Z is an upgrade to the 6900Z series, then it would out perform its predecessor....

    BUT NO Underwater Housing.

    I own a 602z, and the lack of TTL flash and horrible AF in low-light is starting to put me off.

    But heck, I'd still take it over a G3 anyday.
