Canon EOS 40D

40d
Review Date: Dec 23, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,199.99 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Fast AF, 6.5 fps, ISO performance,14 bit DA converter, Large LCD screen, Large view finder
Cons:
As with most DSLR's the battery and CF doors is nat as solid as I would like them.

I based my rating on what it cost and what features it has for that price.
I see reviews that says what it doesnít have but if you look at the camera's that have all of the features the 40D has plus the features it does not have you will see the $500+ price increase !!
For what this camera has, it can not be beat for the price period .


 
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

Review Date: Dec 19, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $74.95 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Tack sharp, Light
Cons:
None so far

Despite all the criticism about this lens being soft at f 1.8-2.8, being a toy, being to flimsy or too noisy, I bought this lens anyway because there were more people satisfied with this lens than not..
All I can say is WOW !! I think I got lucky because mine is TACK !! sharp at 1.8 :D

Everyone talks about how noisy it is but itís not bad at all, Yes itís louder than the USM lenses but no one can hear the lens but you or if some one is within 2-3 feet of you.

The copy I have is very fast to focus and has no issues with low light focus at all, I donít know if itís because of my copy or if itís because of my 40D.

I also wanted to ad that this lens is not flimsy, that was my main concern but when I tried one out and seen that it was solid and sharp I ended up buying it.
