Since they have the preview event on 27th, that should mean Canon will have multiple number of XL2s by then. I guess that means XL2 is on mass production. If nothing happens it should be available not long after 27th.

I might be able to get it in my hand for two days from 25th.

I will do the shooting on what I do the best, downhill mountainbiking.

Kaku,
Can you take a look at the feature in the lens that remembers preset focus points and perhaps explain how that works? This would be a great tool for focus pulling if you are on a budget and can't afford the PS adapter and real lenses. I am curious if it has only one saved position or 2. So you could effectively toggle back and forth between focus points. or if anyone already knows this please feel free to enlighten me.

Thanks,
Marty

Thank you, Chris. My dotMac server space should be fiesible if I erase some of the NV-GS400 files.

Marty,
I remember from the first encounter at Canon, that the switch only remembers one position. I was concerned that the switch did not seem to be easily operated under hectic situtation, but better than not having it for sure. It did gave me the impression that if I could set it well ahead of time, it would be one less thing I have to worry about in operation demanding camera work (especially a lot of zooming work).

I received it today. I will have it untill Monday, so I would have a lot more time than it was planned. I will post the impressions on my blog.

It is a lot heavier than I thought. I've got so used to cams like DSR-PDX10 and AG-DVC30.
