Excerpt: My husband is actually the photographer in this household but I am the one who gets to deal with all the gear purchases and warranty stuff when he has problems. He bought this camera less than a year ago and we have already had to send it in twice for calibration and cleaning as well as a new shutter. We could have just gotten a lemon but I have heard of quite a few photographers having this issue with their cameras.
Excerpt: The camera that i have just shown you is one of the many cameras that are my favorite. I am like a camera geek and love to take pictures of nature and animals. when i get a job as a photographer i think that will be my main job to everything. i would also like to be a vet and learn more about animals and help them survive. i also would like to have two german sheperds and two maine coons. I would like to have all of them in shows and breeding. Best of all is when i...
Summary: Without the AF issues, this camera would be near perfection. I had AF problems (even on static objects with all my Canon calibrated L lenses that work great on my 5D) on two bodies supposely not affected (first one was manufactured in October 2007 and the second in March 2008). Excellent low light performance and great images when the AF is spot on. Unfortunately, I had to return both bodies because of the inconsistent AF performance.
Pros: Comfortable Controls, Small Lag Time, Strong Construction
Cons: Issues with Auto Focus, No UDMA support, Shaky Operation
Summary: Well I considered myself lucky. I got this camera back in July and had great luck with it...After the submirror "fix" was announced I held off, because mine was working so well. After a couple of months, I decided to go ahead and have the part replaced so I could be at the current spec and have my warranty renewed for an additional year. Well...lo and behold, my camera comes back and severely front focuses with nearly every lens I have.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Quiet, Small Lag Time, Strong Construction
Summary: After having my camera's 'stopper, submirror' repaired, the AI Servo performance is still in the 50-70% range, hardly acceptable for a consumer-level camera (my 30D performs in the 80-90% range), let alone a pro DSLR. Image quality is fantastic, handling, battery, interface, everything... except the soft images it routinely produces. Expertise: Advanced Problems Encountered: AI Servo performance renders 50-70% images in focus. I know how to use it, it's not me.
Summary: I bought this to replace my xti. I wanted something fast,great iso and better control and i was willing to $pend for it.What i didn't want was the problems this camera is giving. fantastic ISO as everyone knows, but the AF is a real hit ormiss.I went to a show and I took about 100 pictures iso 800 and1600 with the 70-200 and they were all great (you can seesome on pbase look for my name)I later took about 400 with 24-70 in NORMAL house light(party in a house iso 200-400)...
Excerpt: Points négatifs : capteur CMOS au lieu de CCD, que de 10 Mpixels trop peu pour photos pros. Prix correspondant apparemment au prix d'achat ou peu s'en faut, mais les prix actuels d'appareils plus perfectionnés sont nettement plus bas. Il s'agit d'un boîtier nu sans objectif mais celui-ci très coûteux est sans doute équivalent à celui des appareils argentiques. Appareil largement dépassé, les nouveaux ont un rapport qualité prix nettement meilleur.
