I know this is a variation on a theme that has got a lot fo coverage but every time I check the threads they seem to be focused on the upgrade issue between these two. I am coming from a slightly different perspective I think. I presently have a 1D Mk IIN and a 10D. As you can imagine, the 10D is the second body. However, its limitations are a little obvious when shooting with the 1D most fo the time. Therefore, i am looking at replacing it as the seocnd body. The 40D and the 50D are the two options under consideration just now.
Issues I see are price differential, storage requirements for large file sizes, image quality and noise performance. Not bothered about how wonderful the new display is on the 50D to be honest. Given the requirement driving this body, which would you choose. Please don't tell me you love one or the other because you have it and you want to feel justified. This isn't a beauty contest. I am looking for some reasoned recommendations based on what I need it for.
Thanks in advance
