'But it's missing the vegetables, like an improved AF system, smaller spot meter, better viewfinder coverage, and customizable boundaries for shutter speed and aperture, which might have pushed it from compelling to must have.'
'Like many midrange D-SLRs, the 50D is by no means dead simple to operate: You'll need to do a lot of leafing through the manual to take full advantage of its many features.'
'One much-needed improvement: The 3-inch VGA LCD screen has a 920,000-dots-per-inch resolution--a big boost over the 230,000-pixel LCD of the 40D.'
'Depending on your shooting situation, the in-built flash often has trouble reaching over the lens and illuminating the entire frame -- shadowing is sometimes a problem when the flash bounces off surrounding surfaces.'
'At ISO 3,200 the grain pattern and chroma noise become quite prominent in the darker areas, and at ISO 6,400, chroma noise and the effects of heavy noise reduction obliterate much of the finer details.'
'barely useful Picture Project RAW processing software'
'One bit of bad news on the D40x flash – the maximum flash sync speed is down to 1/200 th of a second'
'the D40x lacks some of the nice features of other cameras in this class, such as dust reduction, depth-of-field preview, and more than 3 focus points.'
'Lacks exposure bracketing.'
