Canon Buyers Beware

Karin S. Humiston "On the border", Amazon
28 July 2008
  • Summary: I have been a loyal Canon user for many years. I own a 30D and the MarkIIID. The Mark IIID was sent back for the recall to address the AF. The work they did to it negatively effected the color balance. It was sent back to the factory.

Focus Poblems Need Fixed by Canon

The Hainster, Amazon
19 March 2008
  • Summary: This new model is so good in many ways, yet is unaccepteble in its current form. It has become well known for its terrible focus issues that Canon has yet to be able to fix. Two firmware updates have been issued as a bandaid, but these have not yet fixed the problem.

Do NOT buy this Camera until the AF issue is resolved

Kenny A. Chaffin, Amazon
18 March 2008
  • Summary: I've owned this camera for about 3 months and it has been to the factory twice and still will not reliably focus correctly. When it does focus correctly or if I shoot landscapes in manual focus mode the images are incredible, but the AF totally sucks and is completely unreliable.

10Mp's and can't focus worth ......

R. Herbert, Amazon
18 March 2008
  • Summary: Most professional photographers have been putting this camera through its paces since its release. MAJOR FOUCUS ISSUES ... AI Servo can't track a static object let alone a moving one. see [...] to review finds. This camera has the potential to be great, but leaves us hollow and wanting.

Mixed bag

Andrzej N., Newegg
11 March 2008
  • Summary: I expected better from canon my version is blue dot but seems that still has focusing problems.I own it since dec 2007 and after several thousand shots I am somehow disappointed.Some pictures comes out just perfect but when I tried doing some sports even with high iso and fast shutter camera is not...
  • Pros: Very sharp and rich color pictures in certain situations -static objects and good daylight. 10 fps shooting Not too heavy Great battery life Lots of cf(but poorly explained in manual)
  • Cons: Blurry/out of focus with moving objects and when poor light/indoors situations. Unable to get sharp pictures in burst mode all out of focus!!! High price. lots of noise above ISO 2000 Poor manual,magic lantern not really better
