In April 2000 Canon released the D30, a 3.1 megapixel digital SLR camera. Two years later they released the D60 followed by the 10D and now, the latest mid-range digital SLR, the 8.2 megapixel 20D. Each release has incorporated new technology from Canon's higher end models while remaining around the same $1500-$2000 price point. The 20D combines many base features from its predecessors with some new features from its big brother the 1D Mark II. Bob Heald has written an excellent introduction to the 1D Mark II which can be found here. For those of you interested in the 20D, read on for the full review!
