Review Date: Mar 15, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,900.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: FF, better AF, better ISO, Bigger LCD.
Cons:
Flimsy CF door. Shorter battery life.

A tad pricey when I first got it but now I love this camera and would gladly pay for it again. Low light shooting is great. I can shoot in nearly dark conditions without any problems. Finally the AF is right on. I always thought the AF on the 20D was slightly off. I love the shallow DOF and how bright the view finder looks. The larger LCD is also a plus. 3 fps is a bit slow but you get use to it and adjust your timing. I'm still able to get the shot and the deep buffer is a big help. My 50 mm looks wide again and I may get a 135mm to get back to that 20D look.

I'm very impressed with this camera and will keep it forever more. Now to get some jobs to pay for this thing. =)
