I have been using my old 50D for years for macro and product photography, and have just recently started into bird photography. Yes, with my 50D - and a 300mm f4 canon plus tc. Not exactly top-of-the-line, but for my purposes, it worked well enough for the controlled light imaging I was used to doing. So when I took it out in the early morning to get the grebes, I didn't expect much. I'm quite pleased.

I have been using the 50D since 2008. I have 3 of them all gripped. I added a 5D3 a year ago but the 50D's just soldier on giving great results. To me their only draw-back is lack of ISO performance, so I cannot used them in very low light, hence the 5D3. Really nice shot here,

I still miss my 10D! I've yet to see a new camera from Canon that has colors nice as the original 10D and 5D.

Thinking about getting a 5D seeing as how cheap they are now.
