"Good balance of image quality, performance and features"4.5 starson by desertratchel
Pros: Image quality, low light shooting, video and video controls, easy-access menus, resolution, digital zoom in video, very good dynamic range, pleasing colors
Cons: Dated nine-point AF system sometimes slow, monaural video sound, slow burst rate, tiny buffer, inaccurate white balance indoors
Summary: Replaced a 40D with this model, and in most ways it was actually a step up. Image quality is better, broader ISO range, and it's not too big and heavy to take most places. The kit lens takes a lot of criticism, but for what it is the EF-S 18-55mm IS is suprisingly sharp with low CAs and distortions (I've spent lots more on worse glass).
The camera is fairly intuitive and easy to use, especially if you're already familiar with Canon menus. I'd really like it if there were an electronic level like the one in 60D, and more dedicated buttons would be a plus. But as it is, I get most of the shots I'm after. If it were any bigger, I wouldn't--the camera would be at home in a bag and not where it matters, grabbing the photo op as it comes available.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this model as a good back-up body to the most seasoned pro. It's that good!
