This journal documents my experiences with a Canon 50D, my first DSLR camera, purchased on Oct. 16, 2008. The camera was end-of-lined by Canon in July 2010 and the 60D was announced.

Canon announced a APS-C 18MP camera with an adapter for EF lenses and hybrid (both contrast and phase detection) AF. Hardware-wise, it is identical to the Rebel T4i.

Cons: No viewfinder, has a capacitive touch screen (can't be used in winter with gloves), no dust cleaner on sensor, no environment sealing.

Pro models are expected to be announced later.
