The Silver Hexar I got still can do silent mode, it just needs to be programmed. I am wondering, because someone said on the previous page I wouldn't need to reprogram it. So does that mean I can change batteries without reprogramming silent mode? Do I switch silent mode on and off like I would on a Black Hexar after its been programmed?

I still am wondering about the shutter lock issue I was having. Could've it been the indoor lighting? I was doing a bunch of shooting Saturday, mostly outdoors, and didn't have an issue.

I'll post some photos shortly.
