Thanks Sandi, Dianne , and Frits. It was really cool, all I did was show up and bring a 4GB card with me and the rest was handled. A friend paid the entry fee, loaned me the camera and two lenses and another friend bought lunch at the gormet restauraunt.
Frits, I performed my ususal processing routine with no variances, it was quite the same. The 5D is an easy handling camera and became quite intuitive in just minutes. Coupled with the 15mm fisheye it was a pure joy to shoot! While I have no visions of changing over to canon I could easily see me adding the 5D or its future equililant and a couple of lenses to my arsenal.
