    OK I stop what I am doing and check this thread for a :taunt:

    I was sure yours had been delivered :lol:

    Reading about the 5d iii last night and it really does look impressive, although I am nowhere even close to touching the corners of my 7d so an upgrade would be pointless for me - plus the fps, which is important for me is actually less on the 5d. For portrait work and lanscapes though I fully appreciate that is of no real value.

    (still think it should have a pop up flash ;) )

    I still think it should have a pop up flash too ;-) although I have a nikon d800 on order as well which does! hmmm!

    the reason I love the 5d series is for the 35mm size sensor. It makes a huge difference in getting that lovely small depth of field I like. The III doesnt feel like such a huge leap forward for Canon though, more like a 5d with 7d features (kinda). The nikon d800 seems more of an advance. Still, the old 5d was sloowwwww so I think it'll be a useful upgrade.

    Anyway, we digress, ipads! No chance of mine being here early, UPS tend to be an afternoon delivery round here and I suspect today they'll have a LOT to deliver!

    britchick, hmmm I'd be tempted to order from the place that has em in stock for sooner delivery and cancel apple.

    It was Keith that made me think about it when looking for case colours for his, not cancelling my apple one just yet as i have a sneaking suspicion that it won't be there when i go to pick it up

    never seen these couriers before just a white van with parcel post on it or something - they do the job though :)

    Thomas wants to unbox it so thats fine, no point me taking it to bits as I can't sync it at work anyway

    lots of apps to update tonight to support 'retina display' , interesting to see what everyone thinks

    IMHO it should have shipped with iPhoto and iMovie - that would have been a nice touch

    yeah agreed. It's not like it's low cost item. Macs always used to come with ilife - iphoto/movie etc and the ipad should have as well
