Nice everyone, I came from an XSI, which I had for 2months, and upgraded to the 50D. Loving it so far.

Nice upgrade :)

I took my XT out on a hike last weekend...nice and light (used my 18-125 sigma lens and left the grip at home). It still produces really nice images...and will probably be the camera I take on holiday this summer.

The biggest difference I notice between my two cameras is the size of the viewfinder...XT's is tiny! (although you don't really notice too much if you have nothing to compare it against ;) )

I have just upgraded from the 350D to the 50D, despite the shop assistant telling me I should wait and get the 500D. However he hadn't bargained on the fact that I had done weeks of research, I knew I didn't have the budget for a 5DMKII, I am not interested in video, if I was, I would buy a dedicated camcorder.
What can I say still getting used to my new camera but first impressions

WOW

Build quality,, size and feel, IQ, ease of use, Brilliant, would highly recommend.

Just need to save up for some decent glass.

The problem is, it's a real WOW in the checkbook too! :)


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

I just upgraded from an XTi to a 5D. I loved the XTi - it was a faithful partner for over two years - but the IQ and sharpness I get from this 5D is just phenomenal.

While I do believe that camera doesn't matter, I do think that you get to a point in your skill set where you definitely know how to utilize and appreciate a better body. :)
