What a difference going from 3 MP to 8MP! The only things I don't like about this camera is the shutter noise and the fact that it locks up and must be depowered to reset. I have the latest firmware installed and it still locks up at times. The sensor seems to get dirtier faster than my other DSLR's. I have used sensor swabs with Eclipse cleaning fluid on all my cameras and the 20D will still get dirty first. I just bought Sensor Brush that uses static electricity to remove the dust and not damage the sensor.
