I owned the 10D which was pretty good but the 20D was so much better.Then came the 30D which was ok but the EOS 40D was so much better. Will the 50D be another "meh" camera as we wait for the EOS 60D?It seems Canon are sometimes possibly too quick to release a new DSLR. Perhaps waiting an extra year to 18 months would allow them to wow us every time!
