I have rated this in regards to its age, and the 20D for its age its still great. I love it, its fast, acurate and strong. I have a 30D as well which builds on the 20D i call it a 20D mark 2. The 20D images are clean and low light perormance is good too. Now days i would advice someone getting if they looking for a great bargin or starter camera or backup and dont have much money. Its a great learning camera as theres no live view, no hight tech menus no movie mode so no distractions. Its a ...

I have been usingn the 20d for around 4 years now and found it far more than satisifactory and given the fact that a lot of new models have been released i now obviously cant rate it as high now compared to when it was new. The camera produces brilliant consistant shots after another and especially when using prime lenses. I use the 50mm f1.8 ( upgrading to f1.4 soon) and 100 f2. Using these lenses the images are mind blowing providing perfect metering etc..Ive seen images from the 40d and ...

This camera is an absolute classic but still excellent. Very solid and well built. IQ is excellent, 8MP is enough resolution and noise is pretty good under control. Fast and accurate AF. 5fps is fun. I´ve got mine used for 300 € which isn´t so much money for such a good camera. I use it together with an 30D. Love the 8MP CMOS sensor. Problems: No spot metering - don´t know why. AF has some difficulties in darkness without AF assist lamp. I would recommend using an external flash with an AF ...

I've been shooting with the 20D going on four years and couldn't be more pleased with it. It's fast accurate and has great IQ. Problems: None.

I enjoy the 20D very much. I've used it in a variety of photography settings, from portriats to landscapes. Right out of the box, I found that a few things needed to be adjusted to my preferences, including the exposure level offered by the metering (which I corrected to be a little brighter), and the ISO applied in creative modes - b.t.w. full auto won't push the ISO beyond 400 regardless of the ISO setting in creative modes. I found that fact by reading the manual... which by the way I ...

First off, I'll start with my Reasons for Ratings: Construction - 4.5 - Very solid built, kit lens - despite being a plastic mount seems solid enough for everyday use although my day to day use includes it being in a camera bag 24/7... The CF card door seems sub standard compared to the body, however - if it was on any other camera i'd say it was solid enough for a hell of a lot of use... [its just plastic where as the majority of the body is magnesium. Features - 5.0 - Just fantastic - ...

I've used this camera for around 2 years now and I love it. It's well built, so intuitive to use and really does support (but not become) you image taking process. Other reviewers have commented on picture "punchiness"etc - well all manufacturers have a preference for how much saturation/sharpening etc to apply. I personally like Canon's "go for realistic" approach - let me decide if I want to further saturate etc! I'm on about my third SLR (I like to make them last a good few years) and ...
