Canon EOS 20D

20d
Review Date: Sep 27, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,550.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fast response, Fast autofocus, More accurate autofocus, Low noise at high ISOs, 5 FPS, Fast read/write speed, 8Mpixel
Cons:
Cheap looking box, but who cares about the box, right? :) ISO not in viewfinder, and viewfinder is still not up to the brightness of my film camera N90s

Coming from D30 -> Digital Rebel -> 20D

D30 was great, but had lack of low light autofocus.
Digital Rebel was much better camera with better autofocus system with Digic chip + 6mpixels. I didn't get the 10D because I knew Rebel was almost as good as 10D in many aspect... and for a lot cheaper... with high resale value because the $999 price was already low. Now I have sold my rebel and got 20D and it's pretty much all I had hoped for in a camera in this price range. Before 20D annouced, I also got Nikon D70, but it had back focus issues, and although the camera performance was much better than Digital rebel, I didn't think the image quality was any better than the Rebel. So I kept my Rebel, and now 20D is the winner at this time. If you have Rebel, and thinking of upgrading, don't think of a second. Worried about the shutter sound? Well, it's little bit noisier than the Rebel, but I like it. It feels strong, and sounds like it's built well and sturdy. 20D is not much for a candid camera, but that's what $200 point-n-shoot camera is for. Excellent Canon!!! Again.
