My frame is the 04. I can't find the 1096g weight, I don't think it's on the web, the only weight I can find is 1180, but thats for a 56cm. The weight for the 54cm is in the 04 Cannondale catalouge.

If you have the cash, go for the Canon EOS 10D, cant be beat. entry level pro. SLR camera.

Before you buy, goto http://www.dpreview.com/ i can not stress how good their reviews are.

And remember the higher the megapixel doesnt mean its gonna be a better picture, it just means its gonna be a bigger file.
