Canon EOS 30D

Canon_30D
Review Date: Sep 14, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: build quality, 2.5 in screen, spot metering, good fit in hands
Cons:
Print button (hopefully usable for direct preview zooming!)

I formerly used a Canon 300d: the 30d is WAY better in all aspects. I even tried a 350d and the built is much much better for the 30d.
I could compare it with a 20d (almost the same, but I enjoy a lot the bigger screen).
Finally, I compared it with a 20Da: the noise of this last one is incredibly lower (shooting at 1600 with the 20Da is somewhat similar to the 400 iso of the 30d). too bad for the little screen.
