Canon EOS 50D

50D_1_
Review Date: Nov 3, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 7 

 
Pros: Great Display, Super speed, easy menu
Cons:
Awaited high ISO performance is a disappointment.

I have spent the last few years using a 350D so going 1 step bigger was a logical and overdue option. I got what I awaited and will not be going back.
Overall it's just great to have a bigger body and especially a bigger display.

What bugs me is the hyped ISO which supposedly goes up to 12800. I never have. The results from 3200 are so bad I would only use these as worst case. Anything above simply scares me. The 1600 is just OK but details suffer quite a bit.

Sorry canon but for once less pixels would definitly have been better.

Overall I would buy it again but only just. Pity I haven't got the budget (or wife) to allow myself a 5D MKII
