Re: Vidar -

The experience over on the Canon DSLR forum, with the new 15 mpx 50D,
has disappointed a lot of people. There's general agreement that the
15 mpx sensor was a big mistake, except for marketing reasons. The
DPreview tests, and a few (very well done) private tests by forum
members, conclude that the 15 mpx sensor records no more useable
detail than the 8 and 10 mpx sensors, and the 15 mpx sensor
definitely has more noise.


Regarding the 50D it's my advice not to believe everything you read in that forum. I've done the 40D/50D upgrade and I can promise you I would have sold my new body if the conclusion was even close to what you call a "general agreement". My experience with the 50D - and I've had the body since Sept 22 - is that it's a significant step up from the 40D - also in terms of IQ. That goes for low and high iso shooting.
