Summary: Good digital SLR for enthusiasts, but like most similarpriced cameras from both Nikon and Canon, auto focus is alittle off. The color is not accurate on default settings(I work with calibrated monitors). Very easy to use . Problems Encountered: Color is not as good as Fuji or Nikon. Auto focus notgreat. Terrible pop up flash- very weak. Previous Equivalent Items Owned: 10D, D1H, D70, medium format and pro 35mm..
Summary: Two months after purchasing the 20D, I'm happy with the quality of shots and of the body itself, but regretting buying a dSLR without spot metering. (Live and learn.) The one disappointment that still bugs me about the 20D: no spot metering for back-lit situations. This often slows down getting a shot as the only work arounds are bracketting or manually readjusting for overexposing.
Pros: The Canon name is most always a plus. This camera does what it's supposed to do--except I've had bad luck.
Cons: Little pixel spots on many pictures with lots of sky. This is the second 20D I've had. I thought the spots problem was an isolated thing, but the replacement camera has the same problem. Four well defined little dark spots--always in the same place. I
Pros: Easy to operate. Quality construction. Fast. I really, really wanted to keep it.
Cons: Could not wait to get this camera. Also got the 17-85 EF-S lens. Got home, took photos. WHAT?, there was red in all the photos. Went outside-pink clouds? Reset everything. TOO MUCH RED! Tried every white balance setting. Tried a custom white balance. Trie
