I shoot the 20D and came to Canon from Minolta (under duress). I love my 20D. The reason I went with Canon is the CMOS chip. The CMOS that Canon uses sees better in the dark than the CCD that Nikon has. This was a deciding factor for me because I shoot a lot in very dim environments (bars, streets, etc.) with no flash. The CMOS produces less artifacts and less grain and collects more light than the CCD in my experience. I just wish Minolta would have given me a good chip in a Maxxum 9 body as opposed to the Maxxum 7D “The Camera of Yesterday Today!” I’m reduced to trading my old Minolta glass for tattoos ’cause nobody wants to buy ’em. My two cents.
