Brian's going to BH as soon as preorders are accepted once again.

I'm coupling it to a 100-400 and 17-40.

I am going to be buying it (I hope).

Thanks for the help,

Hello all,

I am planing to buy D20, but I am not decided if I should buy body only or with package with lenses. I am leaning towards to 17-85IS (not sure). So I can have a good glass. Than I will like to buy 70-200 f4.0L USM glass. I heard a lot of good stuff about this one, and it seems very affordable, compared to f2.8L.

I never up-loaded on a.net, but I have some nice pictures and I like to take pictures. I am using Canon T70 and I do not like scanning pictures. IMO the picture looses quality. One reason why I am going with DSLR!

I will prob. wait, until there are going to be some good reviews and than I will decide for sure.

Cheers,
Andrej

Am not buying the 20D... yet (might change my mind in the course of next year)

Although very tempting and very impressive, I just don't feel like spending a new bunch of flying money while I've had my 300D only 6 months now, and am still learning how to use it. Maybe next year, who knows.

But true, I feel bad for those who just bought a 10D, or even a 1D just to discovers mere days later the existance of the 20D !!!

As for you, I think the 20D is the perfect replacement for your D30. Just don't trash your D30 yet, as you could just keep it for wide angle shots. Having a decond body is always nice ! (I felt like that at ZRH heliport today).

Cheers,

what astounds me is that Aussie retailers are charging the same price for the 20D as the 10D, here a 10D body is about $2500AUD, the 20D body is the same price, would have thought the 10D would have decreased in RRP.

what ever you do, DON"T BUY your eqpt in Australia!

It's the same here, many places selling the 10D at the same price as the 20D, same with the 550EX and the new 580EX which in some places is cheaper than the 550...

Thanks, Chad. It sounded like you were pretty satisfied with the 300D and saw no need to upgrade not too long ago.  Big grin I'm just pissed that everybody else is going for one, too! lol


For those that did go for a 10D recently (without knowing about the 20D), you have a friggin fantastic piece of equipment. I know that had I ended up with one, I'd be so cought up in it that any new model would mean jack "doo-doo" to me.

I just have to make some money for it... I'm planning to get it with a sigma 150-500 and keep my memory & lenses I have on the 300D.
I might get it in December.

I've already told my wife she does not need to worry about my Columbus Day, Halloween, Canadian Thanksgiving Day, US Thanksgiving Day, Hanikah, Kwaanza, or Christmas presents.  Smile

So yes, I will probably buy one. I am still bummed about the 6 shot RAW buffer, but am thinking the increased write speeds will help to mitigate that drawback.

I've heard that with the improved processing and write speeds, you can shoot off about 14-16 RAW before it gets cought up. Don't take my word for it, but I refuse to believe that it'll be 6 RAW...wait...6 RAW...wait...


Ed, first upload? Where'd you get that idea? It's a secret. I was supposed to burst on the scene with the first shot, surprise everybody, and get the top of yesterday.  Smile

I'm not going to be getting this camera! I shelled out for a 10D a year ago and to be honest this camera does not offer enough of a performance change to warrant another £1200 spent! I'm surprised so many 300D users are changing theirs aswell! To be honest, i am still gonna wait a bit longer and get a mk2! Now that is worth the money for an upgrade. I see the 20D as another notch on canon's consumer market, thye will knock it out and by next september they will repalce it, and wait for the flood of people who are gonna upgrade. To me, i would rather spend $4000 on buying a camera that will last me 3-4 years and let me grow into and evolve my photography around than buy another £1200 digicam that will feel dated by the following year!

I mean, the 300D is now 8-9 months old, i guarentee that a succesor to that will be announched withing the next 3 months, priced well under £/$1000 and probably offering similar specs to the 20D!

I can understand why Brian will buy this as he does not have a DSLR, and he is buying into the currently best option! But for people who have 300D's/10D's and D60's i really wonder why bother???

Glass is a much more sound investment as it will lose very minimal money and will benefit your photography much more than an extra 2mp!!!

Must admit that IM looking into upgrading my little S7000 which has served me realy well over the past months.... Trouble is my budget just keeps going up due to new models.

First it was a 300D , then a 10D. But now seeing as I can get a 20D for a couple of hundred more IM starting to think I may go for that !!!!!

Two more Canon DSLRs rumoured to be being announced at Photokina later this month - a 1Ds replacement and a mid-range camera to fit in between the 20D and the 1DMkII. If this is correct, some of those who quickly jumped on the 20D bandwagon might come to wonder whether they did the right thing. Me, I'll wait a while - my D60 is getting slightly worn around the edges but will do until (a) Canon's DSLR line up for the second half of this year is clarified and (b) failing a digital equivalent of the EOS3 the 20D has its bugs ironed out.
