    I know the 20D is almost double the price of the Rebel, but at the same
    time, would it be worth the premium?
    The 5FPS over the 2.5 FPS is very apealing to me, since I take a lot of
    action shorts.


    thanks in advance!

  2. I think you answered your own question.

    Usually your first gut response is the right one.

    Yea if you can afford it I would go for it. I have the 300 and I love it
    but if i had the cash I would have gotten more...Hoping to get the 20D later
    in life :-(

    If you can afford the difference, go for the 20D.

  5. I just purchased a 20D about 3 weeks ago, I'm in love with the camera. But
    don't take my word as a professional as I'm a complete Noobie. But a friend
    that is showing me the in's and out's of photography took some photos with
    my 20D since he has the 10D and said there were some really good
    improvements with the 20D compared to the 10D. So much he considered in the
    future grabbing a 20D and making his 10D his backup.

    Maybe i am just doing something wrong, but i have handled 2 different
    20d's now and i cannot get a sharp image to save my life. I have seen
    a D70, which is tack sharp, and a digital rebel, which is almost as
    good, a 10d which does a great job but the 20d just looks like mush.
    Heres what i have been doing (with the Canons), shoot a head and
    shoulders portrait of a friend, then zoom in on the screen on the back
    to the eyeball, and oddly enough the eyeballs are always soft. The
    rebel actually produces the sharpest eyeball (aside from the D70).
    Before you hit the reply button, yes, i used the exact same lens on
    all 3 cameras, if fact, i used 3 different lenses for the test. a
    cheap quantaray 19-35, (a basic consumer lens), the Canon L series
    14mm, (high end wide), and the 200mm f4 L series. the 14 should have
    made everything sharp, as i am accustomed to with 35mm, but it failed
    just as nicely as the quantaray.
    Is what i am seeing on the screens on the back of the cameras really
    close to what i will see on my computer? (a G4 imac) or will i see an
    improvement on the computer? Has canon put mediocre screens on their
    cameras? has anyone else seen this problem? am i nuts? By the way,
    the Eos Mark II with the quantaray experienced the same set of
    problems. anyone else try the eyeball test?
    by the way again, to answer your question, as it stands right now, if
    i were to buy one of these, based on what i saw on the back of the
    camera, i would stick with the rebel. I usually expect better quality
    with more expensive cameras, if i can produce sharp photos with the
    rebel, at the price point it is at, i would be foolish to pass it up.
