I haven't downloaded the update yet because I'm on the road (in New Jersey) and only have dialup at the moment. But I did read the docs and saw the same thing. I think this is really good news. If anyone's tested it, please post.
BTW: I'm in NJ to shoot a wedding and am going to use the 10D as one of the cameras. I'll post an update that includes both wedding and sports photography tryouts.
Just as a preview though, I took the camera out to a track practice and shot a friend who runs hurdles. I nailed just about every frame with the 10D. It responded even better than my Elan II. More to report soon.
