Squirl033 - I need to do some side by side tests with my 10D and 30D. if 30D shot is properly exposed then I am happy with the outcome. I did shoot jpegs for 2-3 days when I just got it and was not happy with the outcome at ISO320/ISO400. RAW is giving me better results.
But when I posted some of my 100% crops (the ones I shot in jpeg), people commented that noise was comparable to what they get with 1dMK2 and 20/350D. But I have seen lower noise from 20D/350D.
Not sure where I am going with this. But remember, we have a warranty for 1 yr.
