Canon EOS 20D

20d
Review Date: Oct 6, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Speed, speed, and more speed. You can shoot as soon as your turn the camera on. The 5fps lets you caputre action fast and the large buffer (22pics in jpg) allows to keep on shooting. Some added controls that are easier to change your setup quickly. 9 AF points and fast auto focus. Did I say anything about speed. Color reproductions and sharpness are great.
Cons:
Some have reported lockups but I had no problems with mine. I have no negative comments

I upgraded from a Canon DR and was blown away with the speed. The DR blew me away when I upgraded from the PS cameras. The 20D is an incredible upgrade from the the DR. Instant on from either turning the camera on from the sleep mode. Fast autofocus and faster shooting make the camera a joy to use. The shutter noise reminds me of my 35mm days when doing continious shooting. The photos with my 70-200 F4/L lens are brilliant and colors are perfect. The ISO range is unbeliveable. Shooting at 400 and 800 produces little noise. You need fast CF cards and at least 1GB. You can shoot your way through a card before you know it. This camera was worth the difference in money that it cost me to upgrade. It cost me about $700 to upgrade after selling my DR.
