One problem I did have with the 50D was at high shutter speeds (like between 5,000 and 8,000) half of the image was black - like what you would see if you were shooting with a Flash and the syncing was out. I ultimately had to revert back to the 30D, which performed flawlessly even at the high shutter speeds.

Interesting issue. Can you provide a sample half black image? If the divide between the black and the rest of the exposed frame is precisely on a specific row of pixels, that would suggest a non-mechanical failure. I'm sure the forum readers would like to comment on why only half was exposed. Are such high shutter speeds used by many of the readers on this forum?
