So, I picked up a 50D today. I shouldn't have, I know, but I figure once we move into the house, any hope of an ugrade will be out of the window. I've got a few shows lined up now, including a three day festival, so it's going to get plenty of use. First use in anger will likely be The Pretenders next week, quite possibly in combination with the new 70-200 f/2.8.
For now, all I can do is tool around in the garden with it. First impressions are very positive, especially the autofocus speed. A couple of test images are above.
