After we get the DPreview of the technical capabilities of the 50D, I was thinking about selling my 5D and getting the 50D. The problem is, if it produces images as good as the 5D in tonality and noise, who would buy a 5D?
On the upside, the body is only 1400.00US so that's good news.
I also wonder if it's weather sealing is the same as the 1D series cameras, or if it's a lesser sort?
Other than being a crop frame camera, if the sealing, shutter release time to failure, and image reproduction are as good as the 5D, plus you get 15MP--what a great camera for the price.
Nobody will buy a (new) 5D very soon, because it is about to be discontinued in favor of its replacement. Let us remember the aging within the product cycle
when we make these comparisons.
