I read a lot of arguing back and forth on forums regarding one camera vs. another in terms of their capabilities and performance such as high ISO performance, low light capabilities, etc, etc, etc. Well, here’s an actual test site that may shed some real, fact-based light into these arguments. It is interesting to see that in actual tests, the 50D consistently outperforms the newer and much pricier 7D in most areas, only falling short by negligible amounts in ISO sensitivity and dynamic range at lower ISOs.
And here is a post I wrote that goes into more detail in comparing the features of the Canon 7D, 5D Mark II, and the 50D. Plus a little bit about the 550d (T2i) as well.
