Sorry if this topic has specifically been covered before...I searched and could not find anything.
I currently have an XT. I have been wondering if the 40D would be enough of an upgrade over the XT to make it worth doing--I have been seeing several 40Ds in our local Craigslist for reasonable prices, and I don't have a lot of $$ to spend right now.
I would like to know in what ways the 40D would be an upgrade over my XT. I will say that ergonomically, I would much prefer the 40D over my XT. I have big hands, and the XT has always felt too little to me. Also, I would prefer the better grip of the 40D. I say all that because although ergonomics are not the end of the world, my dislike of the XT's ergonomics is significant enough to make it a factor. The ability to put a grip on would also be a plus (to my knowledge, there is no grip available for the XT).
