    I really like the first one. What lens did you use?

    All were shot with the 24-105mm f/4 IS. Because of the crop only the center is used. Likely helps at WA a bit.

    Right now I use DPP but wait for ACR or C1 to feel more comfortable.

    PS: You may not see this but I also used some texture blending for the two alley photos.

    You know all those threads on various forums where people post pictures of brick walls in the dark that have been pushed five stops in post processing to show what's wrong with their camera?

    This thread is the opposite of that. So thanks for posting your photos.

    I test cameras by shooting photos I like. If it works the camera cannot be bad, right. By this token the T2i is excellent.

    What a positive thread and beautiful photographs! Very inspirational.

    I sold 450D/Xsi to get G1 (5D is my main camera) and I have regretted it ever since. Now I have found that µ4/3 isn't for me (sold it yesterday) and miss 450D even more. Your thread has made me think about getting a 550D.

    Needless to say that the T2i scores very high for me on the price/quality scale.

    Re: Fun with the Canon T2i/550D

    Judging from the specs, this seems to be an impressive camera. According to dpr, the viewfinder is a bit smaller than the Nikon D90. How is it for manual focusing?

    Great photos btw.

    If I focus manually I use live view.

    I'm enjoying them Uwe. At some point I may decide to add a 1.6x body to my Canon kit again--just sold the 400D (or not LOL). You are certainly getting nice results from it. i haven't tried any of the Canons with liveview yet--maybe need to just try one.

    Uwe - these all look really good. You've been testing a lot of cameras recently. In this case it looks like you an Bettina are enjoying it.

    Yes, and testing is a mixed blessing if your own cameras are better than the test cameras. In this case no regrets as I love the T2i but have also some nice zooms to go with it.

    Yes I would guess nothing worse than having to review a camera you don't like using.

    I then mostly don't write about it. Because it could be too subjective. If I get good pictures with a camera it can't be bad, right?

    Of course the T2i is no real surprise because I liked the 7D also a lot. In the end I like so called "underdog" cameras that are not feature rich, don't shout "Pro", not expensive and still deliver great images. The Rebels were always like this.

    The Nikon D90 is also such a camera. But it is not on par in terms of video with the T2i. Also one of my favorite lenses is the 70-200mm f/4 IS and Nikon does not have any equivalent.

    Re: Fun with the Canon T2i/550D

    I've always liked your reviews for that reason--you use them practically and I can expect to learn how you felt about the camera in daily use.

    I really need to try the 7D and the 550 D--I don't really want to add them at this point, but it would be nice to know what's really happening with the newer models. If I was truly unhappy with the old 5D and not shooting quite a bit with m4/3rds, I know I would have upgraded by now, but not sure what I will do in the future--but I need to have some idea of what's out there besides reading reviews only (though yours are very helpful).

    Re: Fun with the Canon T2i/550D

    In some way the T2i needs to be compared to the GH1. I love the GH1 but I think the T2i has some major points if used with nice lenses:

    - Higher res (not that important)
    - Less noise at lower and higher ISO
    - Easier to get good f/4 zooms (though expensive)
    - More selection of good AF lenses (I like to use it with the new 100mm Macro IS)
    - Faster Servo AF
    - Faster frame rate
    - Video likely gets better quality (Codec issue with the GH1)
    - AVCHD codec of the GH1 can be a pain
    - Optical viewfinder has its plus (although a bit small)

    The GH1 has the following advantages:

    - smaller
    - lighter
    - Swivel LCD
    - Color Moire with the Canon HDSLRs (GH1 shows moire but no color moire)
    - Silent with AF
    - Good stereo audio for video

    Could you tell which viewfinder you prefer from GH1 / Canon T2i on daily basis use ?

    Thanks

    Re: Fun with the Canon T2i/550D

    Uwe,
    While I agree on most of the points on your comparison with the GH1, there's one more:
    With the GH1, you can use the viewfinder for video, which is one of the reasons why I bought it instead of (or before) the 550D (or 7D or whatever Nikon may or may not come up with).

    Yes, forgot. But I use for the 5D2 the Z-Finder and that is nice too.

    Best would be combination of the Gh1 and T2i. I expect the next GH2 to be a very interesting camera. But we need pro class zooms for m4/3.

    It's hard to put into words, but I'll try. I had a Panasonic G1 with 14-45 and 20/1.7 and thought that it was a great camera and the lenses were very sharp. But, one problem was that none of the µ4/3 cameras fit in my pockets, so I need to bring a bag, and if I am going to bring a bag I can just as well bring 5D and a favorite lens and know that there are no image quality compromises. Another problem is that I love bright wide angles and short DoF, and there are no such lenses for µ4/3. A third reason is that I'm in love with the files from 5D.

    All of these things I was aware of beforehand, so it was stupid of me to buy into the system in the first place, but after have read so many good things about it I couldn't resist trying it myself. However, I bought everything used and didn't lose any money, so no harm done.

    And I often also like the 1.6x crop of the 7D/Rebel T2i. Most of the time I am not really missing my 5D Mark II.

    Re: Fun with the Canon T2i/550D

    Helena, I get your point, for the same disturbance, files IQ makes the difference. I am not a zoom fan as well but mainly looking to use my R lenses. The 5D keep my WA wide which is another important point..... but the beast is big, it would have been a no brainer if it had the size and weight of the average film cameras.

    Uwe, I am use to film viewfinders camera, I believe the 5D is on par. But I have no idea of what the 550D & GH1 could be like, that's the reason I referred to your point of view.
    (There is no camera shop around here to have a chance to peep through a viewfinder beside the lowest Canon/Sony they have one sample of each and that's all)

    Many thanks

    Re: Fun with the Canon T2i/550D

    I agree about the 5D. I used to use a grip on my bodies, but stopped when I got to the 20D (just sold the grip along with the 10D I had converted to IR) and didn't buy one for the 5D. Its big enough--didn't bother me that much for 3 years or so, but then started to want a smaller body or system and did add a used 400D at one point for a smaller body (even tried a G9 which I didn't enjoy shooting nor like the IQ). Still--once I added my lenses I wasn't saving too much weight or size. I still have it, sold off a number of lenses recently but kept the ones I like best or use most often. I love my fast primes, TS and 12-24 on the 5D (though the m4/3rds 7-14 would probably please me for wide--as the ZD 9-18 is very nice and wide enough most of the time)..

    In terms of size and brightness, the G1's EVF is on par with most FF's OVF. It has some cons, but generally I prefer it to my 5D's for manual focus, low light focus. I don't know if the new Rebel (550D)'s OVF is better than my older 400D, but there was a lot of difference between it and the G1's EVF--with the G1's being the much better for most shooting.

    Yes, I would love a "smaller 5D" like camera! I'm hoping that not too far into future there will be something like Leica M9, but I would prefer to have access to AF, and of course a lower price.

    I used to have a Minolta P&S analog camera that was wonderful. It was small and light, but image quality was on par with what my fiancé got from his SLR, but of course I couldn't switch lenses.

    I have been checking out a lot of work done with the Canon 550D and it is giving me "bad urges". Good dynamic range, very good high iso, fast AF, very good video quality. Why, oh why! Now that I've almost come to terms with the E-P1.

    I wont be surprised (and hope) the 5DII is going to be replaced soon. I am holding on to it, I cannot afford a new camera every three years so I better chose something I really like in the first place.

    - Back to the topic, this 550 seems to be loaded with a lot of improvements and the pictures seen here and everywhere on the net show an accomplished IQ, very tempting !

    I was hoping that Canon would expand its Rebel line to include a Full Frame Rebel-like dSLR. It would be made of plastic, weigh a lot less than the 5D II, have Rebel quality AF and speed and COST A LOT LESS than the 5D

    For me FF is not really that important. Actually I often want more DOF and here 1.6x is just fine.

    Re: Fun with the Canon T2i/550D

    I can't see that happening anytime soon until Canon is pushed into it by competition. That would be killing the golden goose--or whatever LOL. The 5D IS the inexpensive FF. At least for now, it seems that it needs that size to handle the mirror, etc for the FF--and it doesn't conflict with the even higher end 'pro' FF bodies. Unless you 'need' a FF, it seems reasonable to consider 1.6x bodies.

    I think those that feel the need for FF buy the 5D and its Nikon equivalent and others buy the 1.6x and don't have any issues with it other than DOF primarily. I had both--and when I wanted similar FOV I put a 28 on the 1.6x and the 50 on the 5D. When I needed/wanted very shallow DOF, I chose the FF, otherwise a 1.6x body would give me quite good images--all shot in RAW (though I just generally preferred at that point to carry the FF--now, I don't know). If I was buying now (not upgrading the FF, but choosing a body for EF lenses) I'd look at both the 7D and the 550D. No matter what, though--the lens size and weight and price are the same and there are a lot of choices for body 'grades' now from pretty reasonable to astronomic that can give you just terrific results.

    That was my next question to UWE : If you were to have only one camera what would you chose, considering pictures IQ for print of 17x22 and camera size small enough not be a burden after a while ?

    Hard to say. The T2i and 7D would be candidates.

    Would not exclude the 5D2 (but it is bigger and more expensive). I have phases and right now I use the T2i a lot (nearly exclusively). Bettina uses a D3s review sample (otherwise she would use the 5D2). The 1Ds III is staying home (too big).

    I bought the 5D2 for video (because have 1ds3). But now I would mainly use T2i for video.

    Re: Fun with the Canon T2i/550D

    Uwe,

    Thanks a lot. These are beautiful photos, as always.

    I have a 500D as a 2.nd SLR body, mainly to use with 400/5.6 for nature and bird photos. I use telatively high ISO's most of the time (400 ISO+). I think there's more noise than I like to have. In fact I think my previous 450D was better in that regard.

    The 550D has the same size sensor with more pixels. Theoretically, it should have even more noise, but technology is improving also every day.

    If you have used the 500D as well, how can you compare these cameras.
    Thanks in advance.

    I did not care that much about the 50D and then heard the 7D had even more pixels. Then the 7D surprised me a lot how well it handled that many pixels. The T2i has essentially the same sensor.
