I get what you're saying here. And it might have been more helpful if you'd said it that plainly earlier on and several long posts could have been avoided. And I would have suggested you re-read my original post. LOL

It's all cool Mavgirl.;)

I would like to clarify something though...

I was giving an opinion based upon my experiences as well! I've dealt with similar situations as the OP is inquiring, as noted. I also listed and put into perspective the entire history of Canon's DSLR cameras.

On the other hand you never offered such. You simply made some statements and then offered nothing to back them up nor any context, as you never said what you shoot or why your burst rate upgrade was negligible, albeit doubled?

I never said the 40d would (in fact) be sufficient for him but it will prove to be a major upgrade over his camera. It's the second fastest APS-C camera Canon has ever made. All the camera's mentioned will be a big upgrade for him as he desires to use them.

I wholeheartedly agree with you though!:D Many people do use burst shooting in "hopes" of getting their one great shot. I rarely use it but when I do it's for an entire sequence of images. I always use "Single" shot mode and rely on my timing to get my desired images. It's saves a lot of post processing....

God Bless,
Ralph

BINGO! That's the point I'm trying to make.

It's not like the OP is going from a very solid 40d or 50d in wanting something that offers greater burst speed and a superior focus system and/or improved ISO. In that case, it would make sense for a person to upgrade to a 7d or even a very expensive EOS 1d.

The OP however, is going to experience a significant improvement no matter which of those camera's he chooses! Because his camera isn't suited for sports in comparison to any of those.

He may end up getting the 7d but I don't think it proper to encourage him to leapfrog over other superior camera's and paying more, because he was convinced the others were somehow not a good enough upgrade.

It's kinda like the old movie Stallone and Winkler played in before they were famous (Lords of Flatbush) in which the Jewelry Store salesman took one of the guys girlfriends and immediately showed her the most expensive ring in the store, when they came in to look for engagement rings. Well of course she fell in love with that one and there was no hope for the poor lad in getting her to look at a less expensive one after that. He coud have punched the salesman...:)

See ya,
Ralph

Well you were right.

I have just purchased a 7D. I just had enough money, and thought it would be better to upgrade once and for all, rather than say buy a 50D, yet in another year want a 7D.

Thanks for all your help guys, much appreciated :)

Will be happy to do a review between the 450D and 7D if anyone wants one?

You will love the 7d. It's a terrific camera. From what I've heard from others, the AF system is better on the 7d than the 6d. Good luck!

Congratulations!

You might find that the burst speed is so fast you'll struggle to limit shots to one pic. That said, I find it's often my second shot that's the best!

Just wondering if it would be worthwhile upgrading my 450D to a 40D or 50D. Shoot mainly motorsport, have found that I have been limited by 4fps and the focusing could be better. I am definately starting to reach the limits of my 450D

I can get a 40D for $400NZD (320 USD) and a 50D for $600 (~500USD)

Would love any feedback, especially if people have had both these bodies. Thanks!

I have the 50D and have used the 40D. Both are excellent bodies, but the 50D is better in many aspects. It has lens microadjust, a better display, 15 versus 10 megapixels, a reasonable ISO6400 and, with the Magic Lantern firmware, it can shoot full HD video (without sound).

Congrats on the camera. You made the right choice:) The Faster FPS-MA-Focusing are all area's you will enjoy experiencing a significant improvement. The OCF abilities that you can play around with will be fun too.

ENJOY!!!

Congrats Heycoop. You've gotten a smoking hot camera and it will be a new experience, especially in regards to any Sports shooting you do.

Yes, please do a comparison between the two camera's with your own impression, as folks always find that interesting. Start a new thread for that.

Have fun,
Ralph
