Well, I finally got one. Henry's had them on sale for $1149, which was cheaper than ordering online (even from Amazon.ca) and about the same price as smuggling one over the border. It feels so much better in my hands. I love the extra room and heft it has. The 50/1.4 finally balances really well - I'm sure the 75-300 (and any other large lenses when I get them) will balance a lot better, too. I love the buttons, and can't wait to get the battery charged so I can get a feel for them and program what I need to. I think it defaults to back-button AF, so I'll turn of the shutter button AF if need be, and I think I'm good to go. Here are some crappy cell phone pics trying to compare the two. This looked better in my mind when I thought to do this. The lighting in our rental is brutal, the few windows we do have face brick walls.
