I have posted in the past about cameras and dSLRs. My preference has always been for Canon cameras and so I was interested when they recently announce their new midrange 50d. Personally, I have always been a huge fan of their previous model, the 40d and so was curious how the new model compares. I recently ran across this early preview. The interesting result is that the 50d does not provide a substantial improvement in image quality or low light performance over the previous version.
Other recent reviews in photography forums have found the same thing. It is interesting that camera manufacturers keep upping the megapixels and yet it seeems that image quality is not increasing at the same rate. It will be interesting to see where the manufacturers go from here.
