Steve’sDigicams have recently posted a review of the Canon EOS 30D, a digital SLR camera with 8.2 Megapixel (CMOS), 5 fps frame rate, 9-point autofocus, spot metering and 2.5 inch LCD screen.
“While there’s a lot to like about the 30D, it’s the 20D that in 2004 set a new benchmark for what an enthusiast dSLR should be. Canon’s effort with the 30D was essentially a marginal technology upgrade like the EOS 1D Mark II N was to the 1D Mark II; based on our testing results, this camera would have been more appropriately named the 20D N. That’s not to say that the 30D is not a capable camera; with 8-megapixels of resolution, excellent image quality, low noise at high ISO settings, robust shooting performance and accurate and responsive AF, it is a highly desirable enthusiast dSLR. But it has been displaced as best of breed by the Nikon D200. “
