Are 40D users snobs?

Hahaha. Well I would be offended by that but I like to see the term of "overpriced" and "no other choice". I am not moving to Nikon for a cheap FF body.

You could be right. But once I buy one, then you are definitely wrong.

And yet, the guys during the film days often didn't have cameras that could do 10 frames per second at ISO 3200, did they? They still managed to get the shot.

Perhaps the difference is more in the amount of skill the photographer needs in order to get the shot? In other words, perhaps skill can compensate for limited equipment?

You hit that one on the head. Most photographers did not have a film winder and had to change rolls after every 36 shots and it was not easy to change ISO *LOL* but I guess thats old school;)

QFT. After years, never knowing of this thread's existence from the time I posted in it...I bought a 5D after a friend made me an offer I couldn't really refuse. I still can't shoot. :D

honestly, i have met aholes with 400D, 40D, 5D and 1D. i also met super nice people with 400D, 40D, 5d and 1D.

i think that aholes will be aholes no matter what camera they buy. if somebody feels superior because of a freaking material object, i wouldn't worry about them too much since they obviously have much bigger problem regardless of the camera.

I agree.

I'm a 40D and 10D owner. I have nothing against Rebel owners or Rebels.

Before I got my 10D, I was looking at buying a used Rebel XT or XTi, but for the same price I got the 10D. I was going for bang for the buck. When I got my 40D, I was going for as much camera as my budget at the time allowed.

I do have a buddy with an XSi and I've used it, but frankly it seems a bit small in my hands compared to the 10D and 40D. I much prefer the larger size of the xxD over the xxxD series. His only gripe seems to be the ISO1600 cap.

I have a buddy that bought a 30D new and recently picked up a new 5D2 and a 70-200 2.8L and now says my 40D is crap. :confused:

I guess some people are like that, most are not. I'm not.

If you can make good pics with a P&S, go for it!!! The capture is the proof, not the body you shoot with. (IMHO)


10D, 40D, 7D Mk II, 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM, 2x Extender, 17-40 f/4L, 85 f/1.8, 18-55 IS, 28-105 f/3.5-4.5, 10-18 STM, SB-24, YN-565EX
