Cons:
Loud shutter sound

When taking a step into DSLR, I did a lot of research and compared different systems. After finally deciding on Canon, I evaluated Xt/Xti/20D. 30D was way too expensive at that time, and Xt/Xti did not feel right in my hands. I looked around and found a good refurb deal on Adorama and got me a 20D. I have been shutter happy since then.

The performance at High ISO 800-1600 is quite good and requires very little PP in terms of noise reduction. The continuous shooting mode works like a charm. The build quality is kind of reassuring and does not feel like fragile plastic.

My only minor problem is its loud shutter noise. Though its not a biggie, sometimes I wish it would be a little silent. Like I said, it is not a biggie.

Bottom line is it is a great camera for the price and then some.
