The first was shot at 1/800 and the second at 1/400.
Plus the second shot is f/3.2 -vs- f/4 in the 1D shot. So you're really handicapping the 40D there, less DOF and less speed to freeze the motion...
What are you seeing, not sharp at ALL, or not sharp enough? The 1D is a much sharper body because of it's CCD sensor and weak AA filter. So it's images will be sharper compared to a 40D at 100%, but realize it's 4mp -vs- 10mp. Print both at the same print size and see how they look.
If you're getting OOF shots that are unusably soft, then, yeah, you have an issue, but of these 2 shots, the camera settings could account for it, and you could certainly sharpen either of those to make them usable in a print.
