10D is 2600 for the body onlyloupgarou said:how much is a 10D now? $2200-$2500?
how much is a 300D now? $1850 + freebies?
how much more does it COST to make a magnesium alloy body? ie: is the profit per camera sold more or less close?
only the 1D, 1Ds and 1DMKII are weather sealed according to Canon USABobo said:After reading Dpreview review on 10D many times, I'm convience that 10D is made for Quality! One thing many people didn't mention is that 10D has kind of "weather sealed". All the buttons, ports what ever lobung is being sealed by "O-Ring" type of rubber seal. Think it'll prevent dust from entering much more than a 300D.
DPreview.com did mention something abt the shutter where they actually recorded the shutter noise into a wave file.StreetShooter said:Build quality. The shutter mechanism is different too. I haven't handled a 300D, but I'm quite sure the shutter is a lot louder and the camera vibrates more than a 10D.
The thumb wheel also makes a lot of difference, compared to pressing four-way buttons.
I totally agree on that... I see lens as a better investment than camera body. Unless you REALLY DIE DIE MUST HAVE all those feature of PRO body due to whatever reason... 300D is just as good ( except for the shuttle life which bothers me a bit )Nitrile said:if i had that extra bit of cash i would have gone for the 10D..but the money saved could be used for acquiring lenses.
Apparently there are some features still lacking and of cos, the colour of the camera unless u strip it juz to spray the colour to black and u buy the battery pack.benny said:So...with the firmware upgraded, the 300D can do EVERYTHING that the 10D can do?
The '10K shutter Death' thing? Din read much abt it, so I'll heck it, keep firing it within my 1yr warranty (hopefully can touch 10 or 20K mark) den send it for lens cleaning and serving before my warranty is up...RossChang said:I totally agree on that...

The 10D is not a pro level camera. It's mid-range consumer ( or if you like, a semi-pro/serious-amateur camera ). It lacks the build quality, high specifications and weather/dust sealing that marks a true pro-spec camera.XXX Boy said:There is alot of other factors that is different between a comsumer-level and a pro-series cameras.
