Got this for my Christmas self pressie as an upgrade from 350D. Probably not 4 times as good (comparing price to price) but so much better nevertheless. Seemed a better upgrade than going to 20D or 30D. More complicated to set up and use but thats half the fun of photography for an amateur like me. I just love gadgets and playing - great!! If you take in RAW then everything can be improved after all. I am still learning on this camera The picture quality is first class even up to 1600 ISO. The colours are sharp and crisp The full frame is more than a bonus. With a wide angle lens you can almost see behind you!! On my old 350D I had to deliberately move the camera down so as not to cut off the top of the subjects heads. Now I have to move it up so as not to have too much clear space above the subject! Perhaps the only complaint is that with some pictures regardless of which lens I use at the extremes of the focal length top and bottom there is a very very slight darkening in the four corners which suggest the light is not hitting the sensor totally evenly over the whole frame. This is not a great problem as it is a simple matter to adjust the focal length a bit but perhaps should not be there?
