Hey, I got a nice pen from Zotz Video with mine... I would rather have a t-shirt though ; )

ANother note. I spent yesterday shooting in and around Ocean Beach and all over the Golden Gate bridge. Since I was alone, I attached the carrying strap to the camera to help deal with it as I set up and moved the tripod. I noticed after walking quite a way, that when I went to set the camera up, virtually ALL of the switches had been "bumped" on the left side of the camera. I'm talking format, shutter speed, colorbars, iris. THis is a function of the fact that the camera sits just on my right hip while I am walking. Not a big deal, as I noticed it all when I looked through the viewfinder. THe second time this happened, I took to slinging the camera over the left side of my shoulder. Problem solved.

Just a heads up to those who might be carrying the camera on their hip.

And I got a LOT of comments on the bridge, and questions from camera owners who had heard about, but not seen the Xl2.
