40D? 50D? 60D? or what for my 10-22 mm lens?

Since I got my 30D years ago, I've switched mostly to full frame, with a 1 series and a 5d3. But I still love shooting wide with my 10-22 lens, which obviously won't work on the FF cameras.

Despite what's technically only a small diff between the 10-22 on a crop sensor and the 17-40 on full frame, I love the look the 10-22 gives me all the way down at 10mm. Maybe I'm crazy.

The 30D is a terrific camera, but I've been spoiled by the huge FF files -- the 30D files seem a little undersized to me now, and they don't stand up to aggressive post-processing nearly as well as the bigger ones. So I'm looking to upgrade to a crop camera with more megapixels. Given what I've spent on the FFs, I'm looking on the used market for something better but affordable (which rules out the shiny new stuff).

I'd appreciate any advice from those who have gone the crop upgrade route. I had my eye on a used 50D, but I could conceivably go higher, and I have no hands-on experience with any of the crops past the 30D. Thanks for any help.

The 50D is the only one offering a 1 point MFA.

If you can test before you buy, a 60D is a newer model and has the flip screen which I consider a plus.

Even though I own and like the 40D, I'd recommend the 60D over the 40D and 50D, mostly for the newer sensor and processor. There is only a 2 MP gain going from the 30D to the 40D. With the 50D you gain megapixels, but some reviews seem to indicate it doesn't perform as well as the 40D at higher ISOs.

You don't mention what your budget is, but B&H is listing the 60D body new for $479. I guess they're clearing inventory. I like the look of the 10-22 as well and use it mostly with the 7D now. B&H must be clearing the 7D also and have that at $749. The sensor and processor in the 60D and 7D are essentially the same, so I don't think you'd see much, if any, difference in IQ. It comes down to what features you find compelling, build, and cost.

Out of the three listed, I would recommend the 60d. I own one and it's amazing. The flip-out screen is very useful and the camera performs very well. I'd also consider the new 760d (t6s) as it seems to be very close to the 60d. It also features a flip-out screen and top LCD, and the t6s also has the control dial at the back.

With regards to IQ and price, I don't know how the t6s compares to the 60d.

I use a 10-22 on my 1.6 crop, 1.3 crop, and FF. Requires an easy mod and awareness of the focal length/quick look in the viewfinder before depressing the shutter (as long as I do not see hard vignetting, I know its good to go). Of the top of my head I think you can go to about 12mm on a 1.3 crop and around 13-14mm on FF.

Several threads on this topic...

Thanks to all for the replies. I didn't know I could use my 10-22 on FF cams -- will check out the threads. And thanks for the advice on the 60D; sounds like that's the one I want if I go this route. I've been cruising buy/sell boards for a deal on a 50D, but the B&H price for a new 60D is more or less in my budget. Can someone have too many cameras? I shouldn't even ask that, should I?

surprising that the 60D is still around, it's been over a year since the 70D was introduced

Too many camera's... Well, I guess it makes little sense to have more cameras than lenses? Other than that I guess you can't!

Bang for buck the 60D can't be beaten. IMO anyway.
