Looks like I'm another member of the 350D upgrade club !

I cannot believe the difference it has made to my photography by doing this upgrade. It didn't cost me too much to do it either as I got an amazing sale price on Ebay for the 350D. Like others I hated the 350D grip size so the 30D feels perfect in my hand. Viewfinder being bigger and 9 point AF is much better for accurate focusing, so now nearly all my shots are keepers instead of around 60%. I have a 24-105 F4 IS L lens as my walkaround which didn't perform as good as I'd hoped on the 350D, but my god it's outstanding on the 30D. Strangely my bigma 50-500 seems marginaly worse but still very good. Had to do a lot of post processing on the 350D and now hardly any at all which is a major bonus.

Only gripe was the dust specs from new
