The powerful Canon EOS 10D should please experienced photographers with its flexibility and extensive manual controls. Featuring a magnesium-alloy body, 7-point autofocus system, and CMOS image sensor, the Canon 10D offers better performance and handling than its predecessor, the D60, and a more attractive price than the Nikon D100. While most reviewers rave about the 10D's controls and image quality, quite a few complain about image softness in the default settings, and others wish the camera had a spot metering function.
