Here be dragons

hahaha.

I had a 10D that I bought for a 100 bucks one time and flipped it. I only had it for a month but the pictures were very sharp! The build of it compared to my 550D was also better.

If your 40D is old, what does that make my 20D ? Ancient ?

In technology terms, yes, it is old. In useful terms, no, I bet it still provides great images even today.

If its meeting your needs who cares how much time has gone by?

When school started this year I finally let go of my Yashica FX-2 bodies; I donated them, and lots of C/Y glass to a local high school art department. They (2 of them) were 36 years old and still going fine. I still have 2 FX-3 Super 2000 bodies (mfd. 1983?) and 4 C/Y mount lenses. All of them still work like new, and provide images I couldn't get with my digital equipment. I would never take my 60D chest deep into the waves of Lake Michigan. If your 40D is still working for you, keep using it!

I have a 40D, the 17-55 f/2.8 stays on it, unless it's wearing the 100 f/2.8L Macro. Great camera, If I do my part it always does it's part! -rick
