the good reason it's .tif and not .crw

I actually like Canon using the tif extension in this case

When I used to copy off my images from the D60 you could not tell what they contained to sort them into folders unless you pulled them up in a raw converter.

On my 1Ds, the tif format lets you see the small embedded image they put in their to allow easy sorting. Not a standard tif at all, but a very nice advantage over using CRW as the extension. The D60 Crw's had a small jpg (well actually an almost D30 sized jpg) in their CRW's for quick extraction within a raw converter, but you still could not see the contents at an operating system level like an XP picture folder like their .tif method.
