I still get great results from my 20D when I do my part. Also the price is right LOL

I went from 10D to 20D to 30D to 40D. I remember the 20D with affection. The ony things about it that I didn't like were the loud shutter and the tiny LCD.

I use it now as my 2nd camera. As for me, the weakest part in it is its LCD where I can see nothing at all, but it's simply great in other things))

Cameras and lenses aren't like milk.
They don't have a "use by" or "best before" date.
They don't suddenly stop producing good images on a pre-determined date or the nano second a new model is released.

I have a 20D for backup.. Thankfully I'd never had to use it, but you're not going to find a cheaper, yet still good quality backup for less. The 10D is a big step down, and the 30D isn't really an upgrade at all.

As a primary camera it's outdated, but whether or not that's important is up to the individual. It's more than capable of taking some stunning images.

God I would be over the moon if a friend were to give me a free 20D, That would be a nice upgrade from the 300D that I am currently using.

You have my sympathy. I used a 300D for 3 years before I stepped up to the 20D.. I feel your pain, hang in there..!

Apparently you are right - I'm still using my 30D (larger LCD than 20D, but essentially same camera) and for some strange reason, it hasn't stopped taking pics.
