Good: It's Canon through and through
Comment: Have been a fan of Canon for thirty years. Bought my 20d two years ago, read the manual and then learned the camera. Have thoroughly enjoyed this camera, it never lets me down although I sometimes let it down.
Good: Good shutter speed, quick focus and light and handy body design and more...
Bad: Not good for indoor shooting. Probably needs a good external flash.
Comment: Excellent dSLR camera for outdoor shooting.
Good: Photo quality, built in functions, robust, VERY fast. Battery life.
Bad: Big and bulky - but hey its not a pocket camera!
Comment: I had to post this cos I can't see why the editor rated the battery life as average. I would say the battery life is excellent. I can take in excess of 1000 shots (miced with some flash) without it going flat. I bought myself a spare battery and hardly ever use it. I only charge it up once a month.
This is a very good camera. Its incredibly responsive - immediate power on to shoot. No delays. The AF is pretty quick - although it does depend on the lens you use. I don't find the veiw finder a problem either. My only gripe is its easy to take blurry shots but then again it depends on the light, the lens and how steady you are. I would definately recommend this camera - especially at the price it is now.
Good: Construction, performance and specification
Bad: Can't read green viewfinder display in bright light
Comment: Overall a brilliant camera except that the viewfinder display is much dimmer than my old EOS Elan, and EOS IX film cameras.
I cannot understand why Canon have made this design change. I've checked several 20D's and they are all the same.
