Superior build and excellent image quality
I upgraded from a 20D to the 50D and did not wait for the 5D2. As others have remarked, all of my 20D accessories will work with the 50D including flashes, batteries and remote triggers.

My primary use is for aviation photography. This camera is quickly become the standard for sport shooting because of its fast (6.3 fps) shutter rate and large buffer. Unless you are using raw (recommended), you can shoot continuously with jpg. You need to be careful. With the 20D, it was easy to ta .... Read more

Read the reviews and still purchased the 50D
I am totally impressed. It is crisp and super fast. Very user friendly. I was worried from the reviews, but after reading what others posted I decided that maybe some of the dissatisfaction was from a glass/lens problem rather than a camera body issue? I say that humbly, I don't know. I use L series lenses and I'm thrilled with the upgrade to the 50D. Like butter. SMOOTH. Amazing results. .... Read more

Some of the feature functions I like.
Before the year is out, I thought I'd upgrade my Canon 30D to the Canon 50D, to take advantage of, among other reasons, the little tax right off. and the financing deal offered by Circuit City. But my financial objectives are not the reason I'm writing about Canon 50D.But my financial objectives are not the reason I'm writing about Canon 50D.

50D versus 40D: Six of One, a Half-Dozen of the Other
I'll echo the comments of many others regarding the 50D when compared to the 40D: in my view, the 50D's not better, it's different.

I sold my 40D to a friend before purchasing my 50D. Half of me says it was the right thing to do, and half of me says it was a mistake. Under the right conditions, the 50D's resolution is very impressive. It has produced some very nice shots. The extra pixels not only mean finer detail, but also, greater smoothness.

The 50D also, how .... Read more

defects are niggling
My only regret is that the price keeps dropping on this so I spent about $200 than I needed to. That said I was scared off by the eary reviews here that seem to be niggling compared to the B&H photo/video reviews that are almost 100 percent pro photographers. I am a professional photographer who spends more on glass and accessories than the camera body and have avoided the megapixel mania. I moved up from a Rebel XTi so I can't speak to the difference between the 40D and the 50D. This camera is .... Read more
