O.. whenever my 20d finally craps out on me I think this might be the way I'm going. I will admit I do miss having video also in my camera.

Just a note, having it bounce off a rock while attached to a tripod isn't enough to knock the 20d out of commission. It'll have to be something more substantial than that, like a grenade launcher i'm guessing.

I don't know about you but I think i'd jump at a full frame exclusive without any sort of 'video' mode before one that has both. I don't need no stinkin video... (making mental note of this comment for when I can't take my hands off a body with video capabilities) Ha.
