    I just picked up a 20D and am rather impressed with it. However, trying
    to look at the image on the tiny LCD seems rather a pain. I do some
    sport shooting and trying to look at the images outdoors is rather
    difficult. How do some of you handle it? Carry a lupe around with you?

    My previous camera is a Fugi S602z which I used with an Olympus TCON17
    lens. It was quite easy to review images in the viewfinder. Not so
    with the 20D.

    Just climbing the learning curve.

    There should be a zoom in function on the camera, for the previews.
    Personaly I only review to make sure the exposure is correct, then I
    don't look at the preview again.

    Zooming in on the LCD would surely give you some indication of focus.

    So far, that has been my only problem with the 20D. When I review shots on
    the LCD, they look great, but when I get them into the computer, they are
    either too light, too dark, or out of focus. I also only see about 80-90
    percent of the shot in the LCD. I have reached the point where I don't even
    review my shots. I just take several at different settings to ensure that I
    have a good one. That's the great thing about digital. I have had my
    camera less than a week and have taken over 300 shots so far. If it were
    film, I might have taken 50.

    I don't have a laptop to carry with me. I do several weekend
    tournaments each season and I need to cull through the images. The
    little LCD is just not a very good way of going about it.

    Hmm... I think I need a new laptop... That's the ticket... Is this
    getting expensive, or what?

    As my wife says, "you can't take it with you", or as I told my sone
    recently, "I'm spending your inheritance". Go ahead and buy it, you only
    live once.

    Both are true and I couldn't be happier for them.
