New firmware improves auto focus speed
Samples from B&H already appear to have latest firmware loaded, surprisingly. Comparison in performance . Don't expect a miracle with the 22 mm and new camera firmware!
How to check your firmware out of the box:
-Turn on camera
-Rotate the mode dial on the top of the camera to the middle position - between auto (green) mode and video.
-Push INFO button and touch [CA] (creative Auto) and scroll with buttons over to select [AV] (aperture priority mode)
-Push MENU button and go to the wrench with 4 dots
-Bottom of screen lists your firmware version

No built in flash. Speedlite 90ex is about $140 extra. --> set up a slick alert for 270EX II ~$125 way way better than 90EX.
No view finder.

Note that the white camera has a glossy finish and is a little more slippery than the black matte version.
