picked up a850 tonight

forgot to bring my cf card, so i had to wait till i got home to try the camera. i did use sonystyle's own memory stick to test the camera at the shop.

this is the flickr album with the photos i shot in the first hour (they are straight out of the camera):

will weight it tomorrow. but my first impression is that it is lighter than my 7d. battery was almost dead so i had to charge it for an hour before i could upgrade the firmware. it came with v 1.0 preinstalled. so like 90% of the photos in the album was shot using v1.0.

in case u r interested, this is the "second" unboxing at home (with 7d next to it):

will go to bed and read the manual. nite.
