I'm sticking with my 40D and not upgrading it. I also have a 5D and will be getting a 5D MkII but the 40D is here to stay.

I may finally sell my 20D though... :)

The 40D was my first DSLR and I am completely happy with it. The 40D meets all my needs and will do a whole lot more than I am capable of so I may never upgrade. If I can just get a couple more good lenses then I will be happy.

I'm rather interested in the canon 10-22 or the tokina 11-16. They really do sound like interesting lenses, but if I'm going to shoot wide, I may as well just use the 5DII and 16-35 ;)

I started with the original Rebel pretty much when it came out then upgraded to the 30D and then the 40D pretty much right when it came out. I've always had the intentions of going full frame and had the chance to do just that recently. I bought a 5D Mark II which I love but found that instead of replacing my 40D it actually compliments it perfectly so I now have them both and usually chose one to shoot with based on what I am shooting but will keep the second in the bag as a backup just in case.

I love my 40D. No plans on getting rid of it, but I would like a 5D to keep it company!

its a deadly combobw!

ive got 2 40d's and a 5d. honestly, the only way i would part with the 40's is IF canon improves high iso capabilities and sensor technology for the 1.6 format. to me, the 40 iS a perfect camera. but it also doesnt compare to what a 5d does for portraits. i shoot with 2 cameras at weddings and the 40d abd 17-55 is strapped to my body all day. 35L and the 70-200 on the 5d. love the results, works well

I love my 40D.

Am selling my 30D though (I hate the differences when setting ISO) and am lusting for a 5D MK2... maybe later in the summer.

I bought my first DSLR, a 40D, back in February of this year. I won't upgrade unless and until IQ improves dramatically in a future cropped sensor model. That rules out the 50D and probably the upcoming 60D, as well. I don't care about higher pixel count at all. And I won't be seduced by newer convenience features, esp. movie mode. (Although I must confess, I am drawn to AF micro-adjustment.)

Full frame is a possibility, but only at my price point. I can't spend $3000 on a camera body.

I can afford to be patient. C'mon, Canon, make a dramatic breakthrough in IQ! I'm waiting...

While the thought of moving to a full frame body is intriguing, I just cannot justify the cost. The 40D works very well for my needs, and I have no plans on upgrading any time soon.

For reference, I upgraded from a Rebel XT about 1.5 years ago, and I own two EF-S lenses (10-22mm and 17-55mm f/2.8 IS).

I love my camera. It loves me. Any questions? The 40D is here to stay! Even if I upgrade to FF, the 40D will always be my crop body of choice.

I would be loyal to the 40D but a mighty fine deal on a 5D MkII has presented itself and it doesn't make sense not to upgrade!

Downside is that I have to sell all of my kit to make the jump, but I am sure it will be worth it.

40D is still a cracking camera though. :D
