Canon EOS 50D

50D_1_
Review Date: Jan 24, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: IQ, performance, AF, ergonomics.
Cons:
Build quality and the huge RAW files.

I bought a 50D to replace my 350D roughly a month after it came out. It is an improvement over my older camera in every respect and the only "negative" is the huge file sizes, especially if you use the full RAW setting.

I also like the idea of being able to shoot in RAW but at reduced sizes. It means I can take more pictures in those occasions that I know I won't be printing anything.

Standards are obviously different but I think anything up to ISO 2500 is very good with some chroma noise reduction using DPP. Having higher ISO settings also means it is possible to get the shot. Even ISO 12800 shots can make good 7x5 prints if processed carefully.
