Not sure if I'm being ignorant but after looking at some reviews it looks like the 40D and the T2i are pretty equal as far as noise at high ISO goes. I'm looking to upgrade from my XS and I'm trying to figure out whether to go for the T2i or 40D. This might be a little while down the line but I'd like to make sure I have a lot of time to make the right decision. I pretty much shoot everything, but mainly sports, wildlife, and macro. I love my XS, serves me well for the price and is relatively fine for most cases, but I'm just annoyed with it's high ISO performance as far as noise goes. I usually try not to use anything over ISO 400 and ISO 1600 is just way to noisy for me. I'd like to be able to go up to ISO 800 or 1600 without too much noise. So far the pros of the T2i are small size, similar controls to the XS, video (not a big deal, but an added bonus), and 18 mp. Cons are price and low FPS (again not a huge deal, but still something to consider).
40D pros are higher FPS, pro-style controls so I will be used to them if I upgrade again in the future. Cons are size, no upgrade in pixel count (though 10 mp has been working fine on the XS), and new control system to get used to. Any thoughts?
