    Keep me posted -- I just did the same, yesterday. Bought an EOS 3 body. After some quite frustrating experiences last year, like buying a digital and returning it after 2 weeks to the dealer and having my Rollei 6008 II stolen, I decided to go "back" to a 35 mm.

    well I got my first lot of prints back a short time ago, using my 3 L lens, 16-35, 24-70 and 70-200 IS and also using a polarizer while taking some snaps of my car in the sunset.

    Every picture was exposed perfectly!! I was sooo happy after coming back from digital!!! I was freakin out about having horribly under/over exposed pictures as I find the meter on my 20D to be REALLY in accurate...

    and unlike with digital, wide is reeeeaaaally wide
    and unlike my 20D, every shot was pin sharp :o

    only problem I had was some dark shading in the corners at full wide and when using the polarizer...

    But yeah, I'm loving the EOS3

    Welcome back to film! The EOS 3 is a great camera for re-entry,good built quality and acurate metering(as you've already found out) .Enjoy!

    detune, tomorrow I'll pick up my EOS 3, and I certainly do hope my first roll of film will give me the same joy you seemed to have!

    I read a lot about the acurate metering of the EOS 3, and though I very much enjoyed using the Gossen, I certainly don't want to meter manually with a fast-action thingy like the Canon. Anyway, not while I'm shooting b&w 99%, where I (and the film) don't have a problem with a slight under- or overexpure.

    You would need a slim, circular polarizer for the wide lens of yours. I would suggest the B+W, which is what I have, but they are quite expensive.

    yeah I figured it had to be that, I've got a cheap n dodgy cokin filter which requires a 77mm bracket to fit on the L lens and it sticks out a bit ... ah well next expense I guess :P
