Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM

Review Date: Apr 4, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp and fast. Feels solid
Cons:
A bit heavy for a walk around lens

I bought this lens at the end of last November and 3 days after I was shooting an event. I was very pleased with the results: sharpness, color rendition... Even on my D30, it was quite fast and was more easy to autofocus. The viewfinder is quite bright with this lens on and it helps to look at the scene.
Actually it is the lens that is on my camera most of the time.


 
Canon EOS 10D

10D
Review Date: Apr 4, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: AF speed, more acurate colors, better grip, fast besides my previous D30, the price, even here in Canada.
Cons:
No spot metering, poor software

Comments above are so accurate that I don't have much to add.
I don't mind for the USB 1 because I always use a card reader.
For me the upgrade from the D30 is a real improvement. I always had problems with the reddish skin tones of my previous camera and now I find the 10D is a lot better. I also like to shoot landscape and more resolution is a plus, even it is far from the 1DS.
I think that Canon instead of working on the Direct Print should have created a better program to read RAW files.
I like the camera and in the future when a new product will come, the 10D will be a very good backup.
