    If AF is as unpredictable as on the C200 it can't be trusted.

    I've now tried the AF on both the FX9 and C500mkII, it's great on both. On the FX9 with Sony lenses it's fast and accurate, the AI is a touch mechanical, but there will be so many instances when it will be a godsend. On the C500mkII, the touch screen makes it a doddle to use. Feels a little more human than the FX9 but that could be that I've spent more time with the Canon.

    Having seen the FX9's autofocus menus in a video or two now, I've never been able to use a camera with so many ways to tweak the performance. I'm looking forward to adjusting the AF speed of the FX9 to where it will closely resemble the speed I focus manually. Wild stuff.

    The AF menus of the Z280 are pretty much the same ones as the FX9, and you are right, it makes a big difference to have all that power at your fingertips to customize how AF works.

    Congrats! Thoughts so far? What are the most irritating things about it?

    That there's so little free space to put pens, documents and beverages?

    On another note: I'm not loving the look of it with the large battery protruding very awkwardly out the back.

    This one is a loaner from Canon Europe for a shoot Iím doing in Palestine. Iíve ordered one, but they start shipping early December.

    First impressions are very good. The image is stellar and I havenít even tried RAW yet.

    Only gripe so far is the battery draw - 45wh is what Iím getting, which is a significant increase over my FS7. For those people thinking of buying CoreSWX batteries and using the D-tap for accessories they will be eating batteries through the course of a day long shoot. I can see most people using the V2 or a V-lock plate.

    Iíll do a longer right-up when Iím back from Israel.

    Yeah, not the most elegant design, it is very solid though. It looks better with a BP-A30, so just shove one of those in when you're doing your Instagram shot...

    I hope someone makes an slim Anton Bauer plate that screws onto the back of the camera and interfaces through the port. Basically a cut down version of the extension back without all the audio controls. Just power for a small build!
