I for one am not happy with my 40D. My XTI took much sharper photos thats just looked better. I dont know if its this lame AA filter or what but I expect MUCH more out of a $1k near pro camera. I would take it back and get the XTI again if I hadnt got rid of the kit lens it came with. Might sell or trade it for an XSI to be honest.

I've been very undecided about my 40D; it's got some nice features, but very few of the things it has over the XSi seem to be worth the premium; the biggest difference being the burst mode and buffer. The autofocus is also supposed to be a bit better around the periphery.

In my opinion, autofocus is the great divider between the 40D and previous rebel and XXd models. The other features range from somewhat useful to just another number.

My XTI performs very well at ISO 1600. As good as my 40d.

I upgraded. Image quality not that much of a difference, even at high iso. the iso 1600 and 3200 are a little cleaner on 40D about 1/3 stop. (xti shot at at iso 1600, ec -1 to mimic 3200). Focusing is faster and a little better on 40D, but certainly not head and shoulders above. Its more responsive, and a nicer camera over all. Both function as a back up to my 5D, and I have to admit, when I had xti as a back up, it received a lot less use than my 40D does now, but the reasons behind that are functionality (very important) and not so much image quality.

i couldn't tell a difference in quality but the ability to take a good shot goes up drastically with a 40d, the features such as 6.5fps, better high iso, dials for quick adjustments, nicer lcd, live view and so on help me capture an image that i may have missed with the xti and the same comparison goes with my 1dmkIII vs my 40d...

I just went out for some night pictures with my 40D tonight and I have to say that the noise reduction is far better than my XTi. When I say Far better I mean very notticable.

It seems like I am getting more keepers and an annoying color problem I had with the XTi is now gone with the 40D.

I am still exploring the features but so far I am more impressed than I was with my XTi.

After Taxes I paid $300 more than my XTi, for those features, the heavier body, larger screen and so on I think its well worth it.

just came back from the river today and took some landscapes in bright sunshine. took my G7 since it was more convenient. i use the XTI and G7 for urban shots and travelling nowadays. i can't tell the difference between the XTI, G7 and 40D at ISO100 and good light handheld. i even experimented the other night with the G7 on a tripod at ISO80 and the 40D on a tripod at ISO100. long exposures, f/8 and low light. the G7 was as sharp if not sharper than the 40D! horses for courses i guess...

I went to a trail today with my ol Nifty Fifty and I got some awesome pictures.
I had way more keepers than I did with the XTi.

I have both the XTi and the 40D.

40D advantages over the XTi:

  • 14 bit RAW
  • greatly improved AF
  • much less noise
  • live view
  • larger buffer
  • frame rate
  • build quality
  • custom menus
  • greatly improved user interface (wheel)
You'll notice that several of those advantages won't be found in the XSi either...

My choice for the 40D was simple. I wanted ease of use with manual control (rear dial) and a metal chassis.
