Screw 30D, get a 5D instead...

How is superior noise handling not a reason to buy a 5D? If I plan

on printing larger than 8x10 for some ISO 1600/3200 shots, it's not
going to happen on any other camera but the 5D unless you want the
pictures to look terrible. Again, at full size the ISO100 shots on
the 30D will probably look better than an ISO1600 shot on the 5D,
but I was referring to web size pictures. The 5D ISO 1600 shots
that I have seen posted on dpreview (including my own) look cleaner
than the 30D ISO 100/200 shots. I'm sure this has to do with the
extra resolution and pixel size which is what you are paying that
$1300 extra dollars for.

There is no way the resolution difference between 12.5 and 8 megapixel would affect web sized shots (both are overkill for that).
