So far, I really like this camera. I got the kit with the lens that is essentially the same as the one that ships with the Dig. Rebel. The kit lens ain't nuttin to write home about. Images are noticeably sharper with my ancient (non - USM) 70-210 f/4. Am really looking forward to getting the new IS 17-85 (and maybe the non-IS 70-200 f/2.8L). First bummer - my nice Quantaray flash that I got for my EOS 10s doesn't work at all with the 20D, but it does have a slave mode, so I can still use it some. There are a lot of features and options, and I am fumbling around a bit, but for the most part, the controls seem logical.
