My husband and I enjoy photography as a hobby with occasional occupational use (he's a tech director for our church, I'm a makeup artist). I come from a film background, using an old Canon A-1, and my husband's had a Rebel xt for 5 years. We are ready to upgrade, but we're still on a tight budget. We can't afford to spend $800+ on a body alone, have no real use for video, and have the opportunity to buy a used 40D for a fair price.
Is this a worthwhile hold-over until we can afford to upgrade to a full-frame body? Thoughts?
