Bought a Canon EOS 5 a number of years back and absolutely loved it! But what I did not like was the shooting slides, sending them off and being concious of cost when taking pictures. In order to get my pics onto PC I bought a Minolta Film Scanner; this achieved my goal of getting the pictures onto the PC, but oh my god, how painful and time consuming was all this. So Canon started producing DSLR, but I was never happy with the spec and price compared to my EOS 5. Lately I have been thinking about the 350D but my heart was really yearning for the 20D as this is almost like for like in functionality with the EOS 5. So in we go to Jessops yesterday and after a lot of time with the guy behind the counter and looking at the 350D and 20D my wife decided to buy me the 20D for my birthday. Got it for £844 with the 18-55 USM lens and 256mb CF card. I am sure that I could have got it a little cheaper on line, but my morals state that if I get the benefit of making my choice by using a high street store, then they should get the sale. Unfortunately the were out of stock, but my baby should be coming in this week. Cannot wait to start shooting! Ian.
