I own a Canon EOS 40D (bought slightly used) and overall I'm pretty happy, but there's one thing that's not right: according to the specifications, the buffer for continuous shooting should be able to hold around 17 RAW pictures before continuous shooting slows down.
With my camera, however, the slowdown hits after 7 frames. Does my camera for some reason have less than the usual 256 MiB of memory? Any suggestions on how I can figure out why I'm not able to use the full image buffer?
ETA: The buffer size indicator in the lower-right of the viewfinder always says 6 for me, although it should say 17 normally.
