I was talking to my brother's friend and he was telling me about his XTi. He looked at my 50D and just commented "the only difference between the 50D and the XTi is the processor is faster."
I Explained to him the difference in noise handling, the addition of live view, the build differences, the AF differences (sensitivity and "cross point") and the shutter speed.
He stopped me and told me that his XTi, when used with a UDMA 60 MB/s SanDisk Extreme IIII card could shoot 7 FPS.
I called BS and told him that the shutter is not mechanically capable, nor is the mirror, of moving that fast. He insisted. which one of us is wrong here. I would like to think that he is, as I have been trolling this place for months and kindof been staring at the numbers for some time now.
