I have had my 20D for four days now and I must say that the images it produces are spectacular. Brilliant and realistic color, wonderful detail lacking in artifacts. I really like the wide tonal range. And the speed of the thing is phenomal. It completely changes the photographic experience to be able to just keep puching the shutter release as you see fit. It makes me realize how much I missed the power winder mounted on my venerable Oly OM-2S Program.

The learning curve is steep and to make full use of this camera will take some time.

Attached is a pic I took of one of our cats on the second day I owned the camera. It is cropped to 4:5 and reduced 50% from the original file, and then and saved in Photoshop with no other changes other than some JPEG compression to get it here. Take a close look at the area at the top of the cat's right eye. The flash reflected off the surface of the eye ball causing a rainbow effect and also off the moist area of the upper eye lid of the same eye.

I printed the original at 8x10 with only a crop to 8x10 ratio and a tiny bit of sharpening, and it is one of the best photos I have done in quite some time!

Me and EOS are going to be close for some time to come!

hey randy... welcome to the club! And nice... ummmm... cat... yeah... cat... :lol:

well... if you're missing your power winder I suggest you run right out and get a BG-E2 battery grip right away! Beside it make your 20D look much more impressive! :G

have fun!

Well, the cat's looking away from the camera, so that helps.
