Canon EOS 10D

10D
Review Date: Jun 4, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 6 

 
Pros: Accurate focus, no noise (in terms of shutter sound), weight, price
Cons:
Noise at 800 ISO, small dinamic range, non trustworthy light meter! (at least in my body), slow buffer, slow start up, weird problem explained above :)

This camera made me suffer a lot (because of its low speed) and gave me a lot of satisfactions:

Nevertheless I had a lot of problems while learning photography with it.

After a while I was told by an expert in digital photography that some 10d bodies tend to make different images out of the same exposure and light situations.

That means, you can take two pictures, click, click, and have two different images. Maybe one lighter than the other, or with a different white balance.

This happened to me a lot of times.

Review Date: Mar 29, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: It has a quite short minimum focus distance. And a good price!
Cons:
Noisy focus, slow focus in difficult situations, colours not accurate (specially red)

Hello!

Since I pay such a cheap price, I believe owe Sigma a positive review of this lens Smile

I bought this 18-50 back in 2005, when I was studying.

Although it has given me a lot of problems related to colours (specially with the red tones: http://www.photoshelter.com/c/bernalrevert/gallery-show/G0000ivtoPMVK6PQ?_bqH=eJzLMHWxjIqP8iz19YjIjEoLcjcsMfWMcs4sdo60MrIyNbCyco_3dLF1NwCCzLKS_ADfMG.zgEC1AJComrtnvLujj49rUCQ2RQAHJhtr&_bqO=0), it came with me to a huge amount of difficult places and tryps and never stopped working.

When I became a professional I replaced it for the (awesome) Canon 17-40, but in the meantime I achived to sell and publish a couple of pictures made with it:
