Most of my shooting consists of taking pictures of my dogs running and playing (50%), friends playing soccer (35%) and occasionally landscapes (about 15% of the time)...
I get quite a few keepers with my xti and overall am happy with the quality of the pictures i get out of it, just looking to upgrade my body to something newer... I know the 40d is essentially the same megapixel count as the xti, and the 50d gains in that area but which one has a better (quicker) auto focus.. I've noticed sometimes with my xti, when i pan and keep my dogs in the frame, the auto focus can't keep them in focus at all times..
I have access to numerous L lenses, got to love friends and family, so getting better glass right now isn't an issue...
Budget is about $500-800 right now.. That will put me into a 40d/50d easily, or i can save alittle more and get a 7d... I've been eying that for some time now, i just dont know if i would take full advantage of it. I could buy a UWA if i went the 40d/50d route instead of the 7d..
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
