'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. '
'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.'
'broad, functional feature set'
'The A700's ISO 6400 setting isn't great -- there's a drop in exposure and color, and the whole image is pretty mottled.'
'The three apps are poorly integrated, and are a mishmash of the overly simple and overly complex.'
'Absolute noise levels still better than those of many competing cameras,'
'the camera does hit one sour performance note: leisurely low-contrast focusing, which ratchets up low-light lag to 1.2 seconds.'
'while you can use live view to compose your photo, the feature will be disabled when continuous shooting starts.'
