I have an opportunity to sell this (fantastic) camera. I am still more than happy with this camera even with the lame CA artifacts but a friendly buyer (relative) is interested seriously in buying this from me.

So now I'm at a crossroads of sorts. I'm still a Canon boy I think (although the Nikon camp has some attractive offerings.) I'm looking currently at the brand new G6 (just 'cause I did enjoy the G[125]), as well as the Powershot Pro1 and the EOS Rebel.

I'd like to hear whether or not the new G6 (the MP kick is just a bonus not a reason for me to purchase this one) and its technology offer anything significant over the older higher end cameras (like the Pro1 and the Rebel).

If you need to get more info outta me feel free to kick. :P

well...how much you're willing to spend is important...

the rebel would bea great step up...

the 6mp sensor is bigger than the G6's 7mp (lol, it is 7mp right?)

so the noise is MUCH lens, especially when you get into the higher ISOs...

the ability to upgrade the rebel is another great upside to it, but, you'd have to invest in lenses...

hope this helps

So would the Powershot Pro1 even be a contender (when compared along side the Rebel)?

For the record... money does matter but it's not my current concern.

So a little more research... I'm now thinking of this fantastic new 20D. I was honestly hoping to have a wee bit more discussion on the lower end line of cams I was looking at (mostly because I'm not a professional I just like cool toys). I'll be continuing this discussion with some of the folks at Vistek.ca (Calgary).
