They're certainly not going to do much to the 1Ds or D2X sales, but for
serious photographers who want to buy a quality DSLR and not pay too much,
I don't think the 20D was endorsed by God; the 7D is a good alternative.
As far as their lens line is concerned (I counted 37 lenses in a recent
brochure, many of equivalent quality to Canon's "L" lenses), I expect that
if there is a lens you need that is not supplied by Konica Minolta, chances
are you won't be considering the Canon 20D, either.

Of course common sense or facts have nothing to do with this; you are
probably correct, people are either "Nikon" photographers or "Canon"
