I am at the point in my photography where I am seriously thinking about upgrading my camera body and I have two choices and I want to ask for input and opinions from the group.
I have been and am now photographing with a Canon EOS 10D body which until now has served me quite well but my photography is rapidly progressing to the next level and I want a camera that will help me get there and give me the tools I need to reach that level. I am not willing to spend the money for the latest and greatest simple because I do not feel that I need it which leaves the EOS 40D and 5D out although they are great cameras.
I am looking at a used EOS 20D or 30D and I want to hear the pros and cons of each body. Both are 8.2 megapixel cameras but I am sure there are other differences with the 30D being newer. The price difference I am seeing between the 20D and 30D is approx. $200.00 and considering I am going to have to buy a new Grip, since Canon has pulled the older Grips from the market, for whichever body I select the 20D is looking like the winner but I want to make an informed choice.
Also, I know that Canon has released new batteries for its cameras. My 10D originally came with the BP-511 battery and now I hear that there is, and has been, a BP-511A battery. My question is, aside from price, what is the difference in the two batteries?
Any comments, suggestions, advice will be appreciated. Thanks.
