Canon EOS 10D

10D
Review Date: Mar 31, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,475.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Image quality, ergonomics and price.
Cons:
At this price, none.

I owned a D30 before getting the 10D; while I liked the D30 a lot, the new camera corrects every deficiency of the D30 (except the 1.6 FOV) while adding some truly useful improvements: ISO 800 and 1600 now become usable; it's possible to focus the camera in nearly every situation; E-TTL flash is now reliable; and changing every setting on the camera has gotten much more convenient.

I have no complaints with this machine. Truly the bargain of the year.



 
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM

Review Date: Mar 31, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,340.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Absolutely sharp throughout the range. Superb contrast and color, at least equal to my 50 f/8.
Cons:
Very big and very heavy. With the hood it looks like a 300mm and attracts a lot of attention.

Swift and silent focusing, just the right resistance on the zoom ring. Superb build quality. Only caveat: Be sure you consider the size and weight. I'm keeping mine, but a lens of this caliber may not be for everybody.
