Nikon D700 still in use with low clicks. It's my wife's, and we both love it.

Nothing wrong with an older body.

A decent photographer will use any camera you like (20D included) and kick the butt of a 'technogeek' who bought a 5D3 cos he read it was the best

Main area it suffers is noise at high iso, but shoot raw and you'd be surprised what you can do with modern Noise Reduction software

I have a few 40D's


The 40D is a nice camera, too. I have one. Ergonomically speaking, probably my favorite "feel in the hand" camera of any DSLR I've shot weddings with - which probably numbers a little over a dozen different models now from a few different manufacturers.

Picked up my 5Dc today, not shot a frame on it in a year since I went mkIII. Have to say, it was a really nice feel. Simpler, smaller, lighter. Still really is a great camera.

Since the 20D came out in 2004, Canon has only made one substantial upgrade to its crop sensor! That would be the 7D in 2009. So, with the 20D, your sensor is only one generation behind the 2013 models.

It seems Canon must be nearing the limits of what can be done with its current crop sensor design. For the last few years I've been frustrated over the lack of progress Canon has been making with its crop sensors.

I use a 1D for the candids. I use a 1D Mk III for the ceremony and a Mk II as backup.
The 1D is still a splendid camera for great flesh tones. Great big pickles and a CMOS sensor!

I plan to keep my EOS Elan 7 and I wish I still had my A-1 but when it comes to digital bodies I have Zero nostalgia.

1DSMkii.

Personally I don't see the point in buying a 20D as a backup. The cost of much newer bodies isn't too high anymore and depending on your style you could run the risk of not delivering on your current work if you fall too far behind on the ISO quality curve. Just a thought incase you actually need to use the body one day.

I can see someone having it as a 3rd camera body, maybe as a rain/dust junker.

But I agree, it's a little old for it to be in the rotation.
