Re: Your LEAST favorite Canon EOS DSLR

I've only owned 3 Canon DSLRs since switching last year and I've like them all. I sold the 20D as I just found myself not using it, FF is better for my needs. Of my current 1Ds and 5D I would say the 1Ds annoys me because of the ridiculously sloooow buffer, I'm always waiting on it...and I'm not a burst mode shooter. Aside from that, great camera. I want the 1Ds2 mainly because of this.

The only DSLR I've owned I did not care for was my Sony A100 when I shot that system. I did not like the main dial as most important controls were on it and I was constantly changing it...made for slow operation. That camera also was horrible with flash exposure, downright unreliable. I didn't miss it when I sold it. My Minolta 5D (first DSLR) and A700 were both a pleasure to shoot with, and I still think the controls and ergonomics on the Sony 7,8 and 9 series are terrrific.
