Hi, I was at Costco yesterday and I was looking at their cameras. They only had Nikon DSLRs out on the floor for some reason. Anyway, I was just curious so I was playing with the Nikon D70. I noticed right away that the shutter button was so loose and barely had to press down to release the shutter. (You're probably asking, what does this have to do with the Canon 40D or 5D? - I'll get to that) As I was taking some test shots, I noticed how still I was able to hold the camera while depressing the shutter button. It is so much easier to press than my Canon 300D. I'm wondering, are the 40D and 5D this smooth? Unfortunately when looking at them at the camera shop I didn't take any test shots (yea, dumb) If so, then I am thinking this will solve a lot of my problem I've been having with blurry shots. I know that it's almost impossible for me to press the shutter on my 300D without the whole camera moving!!! And I have pretty steady hands. This will give me 1-1.5 extra stops handholding I would think. If that's the case then now I'm really excited to get a new camera - I could not believe how easy the shutter was to press on the D70!!!! I'd love to hear feedback from anyone on this, but more specifically 40D or 5D owners!
