My take

Your new camera has more megapixels (resolution) than your 30D. Assuming AF etc is working fine, more resolution is like looking at a larger print when you pixel peep at 100% view. I notice the same thing when I use a lens on my 40D (10 megapixels) vs a Rebel t2i with 18 megapixels. However, if I look at a pic from the 2ti at 50% view it looks just fine. For example, a camera/lens combo with adequate megapixels, but not the greatest lens, may make a great 5x7 but only a fair 11x14. Perhaps, this is a simplistic explanation, but it works for what I see.
