I've had my 30D for a little less than a year and a half and love it. It is my first dslr after upgrading from a powershot, and I have never experienced any problems. At this point I am very familiar with its functionality, performance, etc. You might even say I'm attached to it in a way I could only expect other photographers to understand.
I have the opportunity to "upgrade" to a 40D for little to no cost if I so desire. I'm aware of the new features such as Live View and the self cleaning sensor, and the differences in the menu set up. I've even gotten to snap a few shots with my friend's 40D. When I asked him if he felt the 30D out performed the 40D in any way, or if there were any features that were part of the 30D that were not available with the 40D, he simply said no.
My question is, should I trade in my 30D for the 40D? I've read several complaints about the 40D on this forum which give me pause. Is my hesitation unfounded, or should I hold on to my 30D?
All opinions are welcome!
