I went from a Canon 20D to this beast. What a difference.

Although it can be hard to use on a tripod, it really shines when you use it hand-held. I shoot mostly weddings and portraits, so I'm 99% hand-held.

When matched up with the 70-200 2.8 or the 24-70 the whole thing has the right proportions and works flawlessly. However, the camera is a bit heavy and it can be tiring lugging it around for 6+ hours.

Unlike the 20D, this is a camera you learn over an extended period of time. As you confont more jobs, you start to see just how versatile this tool can be.

As long as the light is OK, the autofocus is extremely impressive.

Overall, its a great, flexible camera that outputs excellent images.
