I am, too, interested if anyone is using digital SLRs. Were there any problems due to quickly changing pressure causing the anti-aliasing filter be displaced from the sensor, rendering the camera broken?

Both of you should look in the Photography forum, and see what is said their......The 300d has some issues, the 10D has beeen wonderful to me. Jury is still out on the 20D at this point I believe, but imagine it will be nearly as good if not better.....
I have about 100 jumps with it and no problems so far, except I need a photography course. I depend too much on sports mode and auto focus. Works fine for 99% of the day time shots. Shots at sunset .. now that is another issue.
My personal experience on the camera is still limited and tend to use AF alot and have had a few issues when it came to trying to focus. I did a few Google searches on this and found a few articles and reviews that listed this as a weak spot of the 300D and that the D70 and 20D do not have the same issues. I am trying explore the other settings now to ween myself off of AF and the presets.
I picked up the 300D due to costs and the rebate - if I had the cash I would have gotten the 20D! I played with it recently and loved it.
Also - I was at the store last night and had my eye on a 75-300 Canon Zoom lens! Damn I wish I could afford that right now. I was surprised to see Best Buy had it in stock for $219.

Trust me, that big a zoom for that low amount of cash, you're gonna be disapointed with it. The f factor (whaddayacall that in english) and the slow zooming and autofocus speed are crappy.
You're better off with less zoom factor lenses with better f values! A lens like this one is a "holiday" lens, ie you only have to carry one lens to get a whole lot of different angles, and it's better then nothing....
I tend to buy lenses like that second hand now, because I rarely use em but still like to have one "just in case". But I regret spending money on these cheap lenses when I bought them new for my canon camera's. So for the nikon I got stuff for a lot less money, and hey, I don't like the lenses much... But the ones I REALLY like, well, tough, no cash
Just rambling, I'm tired... Just, don't blow your money on them unless you're sure...
I have a 75-300. You will be disappointed if you're looking for quality images. I use mine occasionally and am so so satisfied with the results, but i haven't tried to sell any. you won't get any commercially sellable images from this lens IMO, but it is kinda fun to mess around with..
