I did quite a bit of research before ordering the 50D and feel that it was the best choice for me. I was debating purchasing the Canon T1i upon its release; however, there were many features removed (or reduced) from the 50D that I wanted:
- 1/8000 sec shutter speed
- 6.3 fps burst
- Pentaprism view finder
- Scroll wheel for quickly changing settings
- Top controls with LCD
- Larger body which feels better in my hand
So far I absolutely love the 50D and I feel that it has rekindled my love for photography. I'm forcing myself to make time for photography; however, I also have a lot of plans such as school, the baby, and home improvements that may impact my ability to shoot as frequently as I should.
I also moved to flickr in hopes to post more photos and gain additional exposure.
