New Kit - at Last

Finally getting the D2x bodies next week that we've been promised since february.
My new laptop also arrived - a very shiny Sony Vaio with sleeky rectangular screen and DVD-RW drive.
Was totally useless until I deleted ALL of the proprietary Vaio software - the DVD drive would only recognise shop-bought DVD films and not any form of data disk - music, images, nothing. All you got was a chf, chf, chf of the disk going round.
I installed Nero 6 and wiped all the Vaio stuff off and it now works fine.
PS-CS2 works nicely on it as well.

Anyone have any dramas with the D2x? We're off to Afghanistan next month and I won't have time for a full shake-out period.

No problems with my D2x, and that was one of the very early ones (may be issues with certain lenses, but none that I own)... did 3 weeks of work in the U.S. with it, managed the Nevada desert well enough.
Enjoy that massive battery life

A friend of mine bought one recently and had a problem with it autofocusing with sigma lenses, it only happened once, then started working normally and hasn't had any problems since.

I have heard from a few people threre can be problems with some non Nikon lenses
