Recommending a DSLR camera over its immediate predecessor is not usually practical. Most of the times, the new features or the improvements in performance are not significant enough to warrant an upgrade. And considering the prices attached to these cameras, upgrades in camera bodies don't usually happen on a whim. Can the EOS 500D possibly feature enough to be an exception? That's what we're going to find out.
The handgrip is a bit too small and cramped for my taste, so even though I do get a good grip of the camera, it's not exactly very comfortable. That said, I like the idea of the AV button placed right next to the screen, which helps in changing the aperture size without much finger-yoga.
Though it isn’t much different in design and build quality from the EOS 450D, it is still strong and sturdy with functional physical features.
