Brutus Östling is a highly regarded Swedish nature photographer who has published many books:

He was asked by Canon to try out the new 50D. His full report in Swedish:

Some key quotes, translated:

"Fastest auto-focus I've ever used." (This is from a guy who photographs BIFs regularly with an EOS 1.)

"When I picked up my EOS 1 D Mark III and tried the same thing the results were not as convincing, the Mark IIIs are from my experience fast, but the EOS 50 D was noticeably faster."

"My feeling is that the noise level is low, especially considering I had to work with jpg-files."

He was also impressed by the white balance handling of the camera.
