Pros: I been working for four years with the Canon 50D and it had always worked perfectly in every light conditions. It follows me everywhere I go and it's really fast and easy to use. I particulary use it with a Canon 300mm f2.8 (first version) and the great Canon 180mm macro to have a better reach and I'm really satisfied by the results. I'll keep it as long as possible to enjoy Nature photography...

Cons: It becomes a bit old nowadays in comparaison with new bodies but it had never disapointed me...I use also the Canon 5D Mark II and I must admit the image quality is a bit under...sometimes !!!

Opinion: The Canon 50D is my best friend during many years and it still works everytime I need it ! I use it with serie L lenses and APS-C lenses and it does a great job ! I hope you will have a body like this one in your photobag...The choice of using Canon bodies is the best I did ! (Nikon and others are surely great too but I have never regret my Canon...).

Pros: Construction, ergonomics, reliability used price

Cons: Weight, high ISO seal, few AF points

Opinion: I bought this 50d coming from a 550d and wanting to look for a more durable, professional and therefore more advanced machine, at a ridiculously cheap price in the used market. Holding it in your hand you immediately notice a great robustness that, while being ergonomic, translates into a fairly important weight.. Considering the age it has, I presume that flaws such as few AF points, low shadows and half-lights and poor dynamic range and very poor tightness at high ISO are normal.. However I am considering selling it again to move on to something newer.. Conclusion, good as a school ship, sturdy solid and very reliable, at the price to which it is used is still difficult to find a new with the same characteristics, but has its limits dictated by age.

Pros: Construction-Ergonomics-Reliability-High Resolution

Cons: High ISO Hold-only CF slots-Autonomy-hard to tame Sensor

Opinion: I have this camera for a year and a half, purchased of course used. I Think that among the APSc Canon is still today the one that offers the best build quality. The camera body is that of a professional in all and for everything, almost identical to the 5d Mk2. The menus and functions are Also almost the same. It is a machine that is satisfying even to hold it in your hand. In My opinion it is also very ergonomic and not too bulky. Defects... A few AF points, but they work fine. It also Has the correction of the Microfocus for Lens, as well as other corrections for the optics. Low Battery Autonomy. ISO Tightness rather scarce, limited dynamic range (but it is of the 2008, there is) Talking about the sensor, its value is also its worst defect: the resolution. It's a high performance sensor in these terms... But only with very high quality optics. With economic Optics Returns files rather soft, and for the same reason is very inclined to the micro-blur, which is difficult to avoid even because of the poor tightness at high ISO, which imposes longer times of modern machines in Short, requires a nice handle, in Compensation remains a very nice iron even at the distance of 11 years

Pros: Almost a pro, ease of use, shutter speed even today, compared to many other new machines.

Cons: Lack of high ISO range (but it is not a problem), it is only for those who want to produce the shot (no video), to enjoy a quality of shutter go necessarily combined with high-end optics and can withstand the comparison with more expensive machine work

Opinion: I bought it new in 2010 and I never regretted it. Ideal companion in all fields of work. Robust and reliable. Certainly now suffers a bit of the passing of the years but considering that photography is mainly optical, if combined with the objectives of series L or art, still manages to keep the comparison on the field (I tried the above lenses thanks to friends and I must say that compared to the kit That I own the improvement is remarkable!). I will continue to use it and hopefully keep it as a second body. Recommended the purchase used considering the prices that is proposed.
