Canon EOS 50D Review

The Canon EOS 50D has just been reviewed by PhotographyBLOG. For those of you unaware, the 50D is the new replacement for the Canon 40D DSLR, and this Canon EOS certainly doesn't disappoint. Released just one year after the 40D, the new EOS 50D DSLR is Canon's answer to its main rival, the Nikon D300.

"Considered on its own terms, the EOS 50D is a more than worthy addition to Canon's semi-pro DSLR line-up. It boasts a significant number of refinements to a proven design that current EOS users will welcome, whilst adding enough features to catch-up with and in some ways surpass the Nikon D300. Canon have mainly placed their bets on the combination of the new 15 megapixel sensor and Digic 4 processor, hoping that the headline-grabbing pixel count will steal the limelight - thankfully this hasn't come at the expense of image quality. Both prosumer and professional photographers should give the Canon EOS 50D serious consideration."
