30 minutes after getting the mark 3!!!

You're clearly a lot brighter then I. Having glanced at the mark 3's 400-page manual, I now realize that there is no chance of getting my mark 3 going before the mark 4 comes out in a couple of years. "What did you dod with the mark 3?" they will ask me. "Studied the manual" I will reply.
Perhaps I'm too stupid to own a mark 3....

And if you think the manual is bad... just consider the vast number of menu items. You can pre-flight a 747 and load a flightplan into the navigation computer faster than changing the ISO on a mark 3....

Seriously, this camera comes with a steep learning curve. It makes my 1D4 look llike a toy. I have taken a few test images - although I haven't investigated focus tracking because I'm packing to go to El Paso (from England) tomorrow and have no time. However, so far I am very impressed and don't (entirely) regret the £3K I paid. It's low-light performance is quite remarkable.
