I vote for the 50D for the same reasons Kruzkal stated. Add to that UDMA card access as well. That will make you get a UDMA card and a UDMA reader too. UDMA will change your life.

I just upgraded from a XS to a 40D this past weekend. The only thing I hate about this camera is the LCD resolution. Zooming in, the XS is way better then the 40D.

The 40D feels like a 'real mans' camera' compared to my XS. I hold both in my hand and the XS seems like a playskool toy.

Hi, if price is an issue, then wait until the end of the year when the 60D is released and buy the 50D. The 50D is a significantly different camera than the 40D.

Take a look at this thread and the other threads on this forum:

We have both. Don't upgrade if you want better IQ at high ISO as the sensors are very similar. There are many other features that make the upgrade worthwhile, mainly improved speed and ergonomics.
