Not impressed by 20D
Sep 4, 2004

OK, i have seen all the sample pictures on the web up to this point.

The picture quality from 20D looks and feel just like the 10D. The dynamic range is about the same as the 10D (at normal ISO's) and it still has that digital feel to it. The shadows are almost lifeless.

I think it is the DR that sets the 1D MKII apart from the 20D, it's the silky smooth DR making the image from 1D so real.

I am sorry to disappoint some of the 20D believers ("20D beats MkII for pro with $4500 to spend") that, if you add three 20D's together, or put all your money into the best Canon L lens, you will still not get that smooth DR of the 1D.

Put the weather sealling, 8fps speed aside, if you require the best picture quality, 1DMKII is your only choice. If you are still wavering between 1DMKII and 20D, pickup the phone now and order the 1DMKII, there is no need to wait for the 20D.
