The smal screen is probably the only reason i would change, would rather a new lens though :)

What's the average selling price for these? And should I buy one with the 18-55 or just buy the body and get another lens?


Right now I'd say a reasonably good price is around $450US shipped. I paid $450 canadian locally which was a pretty good deal. You can also find them refurbished on adorama.com. Some people say that it's too pricey, but I think it's a great camera.

The original 18-55 kit lens is only worth $50 or so, if it comes with it you can sell it for maybe $60. I have the 18-55IS and it's a nice little lens. :)

I love my 30D, but I will probably put it for sale next week to get me a 5D MkII. And I'm gonna ask $450 for it.

I love my 30D. It's never let me down! I'll keep it until I can get a used 5D Classic for $500-700...

My 30 served me well. I still plan to use it as a second body (especially on trips where many lens changes are needed), but .... I recently bought a used 50D. The auto ISO and the 1600 ISO seem much better to me. I also think the live view will be hand 1) when adjusting dof/focus on macro shots 2) when manual focus is needed with my 2x Tcon (which makes min. f-stop of 8 i.e. no autofocusing). Sorry, I don't feel like a traitor, just a trader.

Here is a few over the last year or so. I really like the 30D, but really have nothing to compare it to. Also, I don't have an PP software to tweak the photos.

Really?! Someone is on the same page as me?! I always tell people that I like the screen and it doesn't bother me and they think I'm crazy. the 30d has the perfect size, the 40d and 50d just went overkill. I mean c'mon do we really show off our pictures before we edit them? not really..


But anyways are any of you guys using a bg-e2 grip? I love mine but kind of don't like the plastic feel of it.

for me the screen is one of those items that if you have not used a body like the 50D w/ its high res screen - you just don't know - good or bad.

its not the end of the world .... but a nice feature.
does not mean i am getting rid of the 20D .... nope.

Later,
_Mark

I don't use the screen much either. As a matter of fact, I've got the picture review time set to OFF, so the screen never even lights up unless I press the play button. I wear glasses, and there's nothing quite as distracting as looking through the viewfinder, shooting a picture, and then having the glare off of the screen wash across your glasses. It's even worse at night or in a dim area.

I had a battery grip on my film camera (rebel 2000), and really REALLY liked it. I don't have one for my 20D, and haven't been able to justify the expense to myself or my wife :D. I sure do miss the second set of buttons, though.:(

I got a grip for 125 from my friend :) I used to own a rebel 2000 too! Sold it to a woman here for 50$.
