Which lens were you using for these shots?

sorry for taking so long to reply -- they were taken with the 100 - 400L.

Ended up getting one of the yesterday. Found one locally that looks like its been barely used and I got a really good price on it. Looking forward to seeing what it can do.

with all focus points being cross point, it really helped me. A very under appreciated camera, IMHO.

From a senior shoot:

Here are some from Melbourne Zoo yesterday. I had the 6D with me as well, but I used the crop format of the 50D to advantage for those further away subjects..

How many of you use live view auto focus more than looking through the viewfinder? After seeing that live view auto focus is much more accurate, I've been using live view much more than looking through the viewfinder. Only downside of live view is that it is slow to auto focus.

Is the diopter in your viewfinder off?

Diopiter does not affect autofocus, it just adjusts for your eye vision. Diopiter is adjusted to my eye.

Every time I'm tempted with upgrading my 50D, I look at threads like this and realize the camera is capable of so much more than I've gotten out of it so far.

When I upgraded to my current 6D, the biggest benefit was the ISO performance. ISO 12800 looks as good as ISO 3200 on my old 50D, at least to my eyes. The RAW files are more "robust" too, as they are much easier to edit without hitting things like banding or noise.

That said, I miss the FPS as I occasionally shoot sports.

When I look back at my 50D pictures side by side with my 6D shots, I don't see a huge difference in IQ. It's not until I look at the EXIF where I start to notice where the 6D shines.

The ISO performance is the only reason I'll upgrade to full frame, like a 5D2. Other than that (and my 50D autofocus doesn't have a tight tolerance) the 50D is a great camera
