I never feel I'm "behind in technology", but I just sold my XTi on Amazon Marketplace for $525. [Will wait for a couple of weeks to see if the prices of the 40D come down, and for Apple to support the 40D's RAW - no shooting project for now.]

My last SLR was a 1G Elan that I used for many years. There are a few things I just don't like about the XTi.

- Shutter noise. I mostly shoot when traveling, and want to do it quietly in churches, etc. The shutter is very loud on the XTi compared to my Elan.

- No quick dial. For exposure compensation and when using M, the quick dial is very important. Again, I shoot fast and on the go.

I know the 40D will give me back those things, which I treasure. And then I'm very excited about the C1-C3 modes. This way, I can set one for 200 ISO, highlight priority, optimum aperture for outdoor sharpness; one for high ISO, maximum aperture for dark interiors; and one with AI Servo, evaluative metering for sudden things that I want to shoot.

Instead of pressing so many buttons to change ISO and then click click click to go from F11 to F1.4 or 2.8, I can just switch the mode over and start shooting immediately.

Well, I don't have my camera yet, but at least in theory, those will give me a lot of benefits over the XTi for my travel needs. Of course, the huge downside is the extra size and weight.

My 350d is working reliably after 18 months. Just bought a new lens, my first L. I will stick to my 350d for at least another year.

I won't be selling my 2000clicks Xti for another crop camera.
I'll be taking a look at the 5d Mk2 next year.
For the time being, it's better to invest in Lenses.
