Canon EOS 10D

10D
Review Date: Jul 19, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $700.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Ergonomics, image quality, it's a Canon.
Cons:
Slow startup and image write speed, menus and custom functions can be confusing, won't take EF-S lenses, Mac software awkward to use, little or no warning when battery dies.

My first digital SLR (and first autofocus SLR) after owning a Canon T90 for decades. It feels right to me where the 350D made my hand cramp up. The image quality is good enough to make me swear off Fujichrome Astia!

The startup lag is very annoying. Any other complaints I might have are nits. I don't care for the Canon software, so I use Photoshop CS2 instead.

At current used prices, I'd say the 10D is a steal!
