DPExpert have reviewed the new Canon EOS 50D Digital SLR – an update to the 40D – it features a new 15.1 megapixel sensor, 6.3fps shooting, Canon’s latest DIGIC 4 image processor, ISO upto 12800, 3″ screen with live view, sensor cleaning, 9 point AF, and face detection. Body only is available for £858:
“Some reviewers have been harsh in their criticism of the 50D, generally concluding that its image quality is not as good as the 40D. We tried extreme pixel peeping and there does seem to be some fall-off in sharpness and contrast but we doubt that it will be a problem in the realm of real photography. We certainly wouldn’t recommend that anyone rush out to replace their 40D with the new camera because the difference is not that great.”
