Canon EOS 20D vs. Canon EOS 10D @ ISO 800

The following shot is of Tower Bridge, London. All shots were taken from the same tripod.
Camera settings:

  • Canon EOS 20D: Canon EF 50 mm F1.4, Aperture Priority (F9),
    ISO 800, JPEG Large/Fine, Auto WB, Parameter 2 (neutral), Self-Timer
     
  • Canon EOS 10D: Canon EF 50 mm F1.4, Aperture Priority (F9),
    ISO 800, JPEG Large/Fine, Auto WB, Standard Params (neutral), Self-Timer
Canon EOS 20D
Canon EOS 10D
ISO 800, 1/2000 sec, F9
ISO 800, 1/2500 sec, F9
4,130 KB JPEG (3504 x 2336)
3,282 KB JPEG (3072 x 2048)

These two shots were taken approximately three minutes apart and in that time a cloud had darkened the area behind the bridge. Hence the 20D metered a third stop slower shutter speed than the 10D, in addition the 10D's image appears slightly brighter and exhibits slightly less dynamic range. Noise wise the 20D image looks cleaner especially in shadow areas.

The main thing I want from camera performance is to not notice it, and the Canon EOS 20D passed that test. It shot when I wanted to shoot, focused when I wanted something sharp, and let me look through images quickly when it was time for a break. With the 20D, I never had to waste time and miss shots waiting for the camera.
