Got my new Canon 50D!

Well, I finally decided to upgrade to the new Canon 50D. This is Canon's top-level 1.6 crop body and is an amazing camera. It features 15.1 megapixel resolution, Live View, self-cleaning sensor, 6.3 frames per second, a 920,000 dot LCD and more! Here are some of the first photos taken with it...

Clean shots!

I Have the EOS 450D Lovely camera! It just feels so easy and nice to hold! i was not keen on the nikkon range!

Im using a Sigma 70-300mm Lens, simgma are ok but it will never keep up with canon lens'

You shot RAW? great format but eats up memory sticks!

Thanks LZ, Kev, oldschool, and QUIKSILVER!

LED ZEP, all the shots were taken with my Canon 70-300 IS lens. I had owned the Canon 100-400 'L' and it took amazing photos but at 3lbs it was just too heavy for me, so sadly I had to sell it I've been amazed at the results I get with this 'consumer' lens, even at 300mm. I actually owned a Sigma 70-300 APO DG lens and it was a GREAT lens for the money, in fact I actually have 2 Flying Models magazine covers I took using it.

QUIKSILVER, I haven't shot in RAW yet but am anxious to try it! You are right, 15.1 megs takes up a LOT of space, which is why I got a 1TB external hard drive just for my pictures!
