    IfI usemy camera everday, the xxD body is always better than the xxxD/Rebel body. Forthe joystick, the quick control dial and faster frame rate, I'd choose a xxD body over the xxxD/Rebel body anytime.

    I agree. The larger body is also much easier to handle (for me, at least). Even with the battery grip on my Rebel XT, it was to small. I find my 40D w/ grip a much more balanced system, especially with long glass.

    I would have to agree with that assessment. I always felt like the 70-200 f/2.8 L IS was a bit too much weight for the Rebel body. It worked, of course, but I was certainly more careful with the long zoom mounted on the Rebel than I am with the same lens on the 50D.


    Now that I have the 50D, the Rebel feels like a toy. It still takes great pictures, but it doesn't feel as solidly built and doesn't feel substantial when holding it.

    I want to see a 1DsMkIV on my nightstand tomorrow morning, or on the kitchen counter, where my bills used to be []
