'Image stabilization in camera body.'
'Across all focal lengths its pictures were very sharp too, and we loved how the apertures were relatively wide for a telephoto.'
'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.
'With its lightning speed and gorgeous images, there's not much to complain about with the Canon EOS 50D—especially if you already own compatible lenses. '
'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. '
'It's an ideal model for the mid-range to advanced DSLR user -- but it's also a very forgiving camera to better your craft on. '
'The new 14-54mm lens will also be capable of contrast-detection autofocusing, for compatibility with Olympus' Live View function.'

'decent build quality'
