My 20D arrived today, along with EF 17-40mm f/4L USM. Boy, are there a lot of buttons on this thing. Have taken a couple of test shots trying to figure out how things are layed out. The biggest difference I notice right of the bat is the instant on, even from stand by. My Oly c5050 would take forever to start up, don't how many images I missed waiting for itto be ready to shot.

I'll have more time tomorrow to take some photos and play with the settings some.

The only real complaint I have is the dimness of the camera info in the viewfinder.

It's a true winner just about everywhere else.

Read the manual. The viewfinder could be brighter but the camera was worth the upgrade from my 300D. If you are new to dslr, then learn how to use the manual settings. I am still learning but you can have alot more control in the manual settings.

I have a 10D and just ordered the 20D yesterday with the 17-85 Lens.

I also have a 70-200 2.8 IS USM that I use for the kids sports shots..........


Samy's said it should be in w/in a couple weeks and I can't wait!

This is the most annoying feature of the 20D. Does anyone know why this happens and if Canon have anything to say about it? I can't find any info.

I don't have this problem....Did I just get lucky? Mine is bright enough in any condition I've had it in. I've had it since November and Love it. I just wish I were as good as my camera! Maybe one day I'll catch up to it. In the mean time I'm having a ball learning!
