Canon EOS 20D

20d
Review Date: Jul 16, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,149.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Solid build, intuitive controls, fast focusing, excellent photos!
Cons:
LCD display is too small.

I waited to upgrade from my 300D until I heard about the release of the 30D. The improvements in the 30D didn't justify the additional $300 in cost, plus the 30D wasn't available yet. I haven't been dissapointed with the 20D. With my 24-70mm f/2.8L and 70-200mm f/2.8L IS, I really don't need anything else. Almost every photo is a keeper.

The only caveat is the small LCD display. I do a lot of catalog work, and it is sometimes difficult to see the photo number in bright sunny conditions. For this, you may want to consider the 30D. But that is the only reason.

Pros: Outstanding sharpness, better than many primes. IS, handhold to 1/10th of a second. Build. Almost all shots are keepers. Great Bokeh, too.
Cons:
None.

Outstanding lens. Can handhold lens in many circumstances that would have required a tripod, before. I love it.
