Canon 50d a good buy?
Aug 18, 2010

I know most people (me included) like the latest and greatest gear, but I am considering getting a 50d.

I have 2 Rebels an XT and a T2i but I would like something more substantial to hold with the longer lenses.

Me and my wife share cameras but I don't get to see the T2i much, the XT seems to have become mine!

They are currently selling the 50d for $800 CDN right now which is around half what the 7d is selling for.

I don't need video and I don't need blistering speed, what I do want is a reliable camera that will take great pictures and will be a good instrument to learn on.
Do you think it is a sensible purchase?
