I am really wanting a 40d for the xtra shots per second and am told that they are much better in lowlight. However, I have two REALLY good deals for XTi's right now and am wondering if me as an average shooter will notice the difference? Most of my shots will be outside and during lowlight conditions(hunting type situation). Does anyone have both that could post a couple pics from the same situation for me? Thanks.

Brian

Not that much better in low light, if at all. I've owned both, never noticed a difference in image quality in low ISO or high ISO. 40D is a much better camera in terms of functionality though.

I second that. The 40D's only advantage in low light, high ISO pictures are the out-of-camera jpeg shots where it has a built in high iso noise reduction function, whereas the XTi doesn't (or if it does, it's subtle and non-switchable in the menu). The XTi has more chroma noise in its high ISO jpegs. But RAW files are very similar from the two (maybe the 40D is better by a tiny bit).

The 40D might be a tiny bit better in high iso performance as noted above. But the 40D wins on almost all other counts.

I agree with the others that the 40D is only marginally better for noise. I have, however, found its focusing to be a little more accurate and consistent in low light situations (centre point focus only).

In addition, it's bigger, brighter viewfinder would make it a little easier to find/follow subjects.
