Maturity and the Canon EOS Digital Rebel/500D

There wasn’t that long ago, that every time Canon came out with a new camera, I HAD to own it. I NEEDED to own it since my photography was improving and I needed a camera to match it’s growth. For me, that stopped when I got the 20d. I had the 20d and I didn’t like it, but I liked the fps of it. When the 30d came out, I was unimpressed with it. I wasn’t impressed with the 40d, but wanted the extra 2mp to be able to push the image a bit more. A few months back, I got the original 5D and haven’t looked back. When I got it, I had the option to get a 1d mk III or 1ds mk III. These are great cameras, but not that much better than the 5d.

Today, Canon just announced the Canon EOS Digital Rebel 500d:
