I've had it for about 3 months. I absolutely love it, but its the first SLR I've ever owned and so I couldn't give you a balanced viewpoint. I will say it has done everything I've asked it to. I truly don't use the screen that often, so while it was a factor for me between the 20D/30D, the truth is I don't use it. I will say its all about the lenses. If you buy the 30D and a crappy lens, much better to go with the 20D and a nice lens, IMO.
