Some reviewers have remarked on the fact that Canon have dropped the magnesium alloy construction and so this is more of an enthusiast's DSLR rather than a semi-pro. However, it remains very capable of producing excellent results with lots of features that will appeal especially to anyone looking to upgrade from the EOS 400/450D specification but who can't afford the EOS 7D or the EOS 5D.
