My EX1 arrived today - actually a TL500 because it came from the US. Ordered 11pm Monday my time and it arrived noon today (Friday) in Perth - that pretty slick service. I was pleased that both batteries had some charge so I could play immediately. There are a couple of menu options greyed out and after reading the manual I still can't work out why. The first is "Focus Area" - I have it set to Nor(mal) but can't select the focus area. The second is "Smart Range" also greyed out. I am not in the smart (aka dumb) mode and it applies in RAW and jpeg settings. I also don't see the "Auto Macro" option when I push the macro (down) arrow. So far apart from these niggles the cam looks like it will suit me (oops I meant my wife ) very well.
