Re: Is it worth the extra money 20D vs 30D ?

I say if you have the money, go with what's new! Sure the 10D and the 20D are great cameras, I have the 10D and it's great, but the 30D does have some great new features that I can't wait to get my hands on. I know you said the 2.5" diplay isn't important to you, but I had a hard time making out anything in that tiny display. I'm also looking forward to the ability to use the new EF-S lens, that 1.6 muliplyer has always felt like a crunch to me and being able to use a lens that is design for that 1.6 is gonna be big for me, since I do a lot of wide angle shots.

The 30D has that new 100,000 cycle shutter durability, so that should be big for you. You won't regret it. I personally can't wait.

I'm not wurried about 2.5" display, I'm more concerned about speed
of shutter and life time on shutter, or focusing isues.
Ill be using prime F1.4 lenses.
any advice?
