      Well, I used them all. 40D is an ASTONISHING IMPROVEMENT in terms of
      usability ( software interface) and what's more importat, SENSOR.
      Files are better, sharper, 14bits you can really feel. Only better raws
      I've seen in term of contrast handling are fuji ones.
      Well, it is also faster, but I don't give a damn about it. Only got it
      cause my 20D is at the end of phisycal life (long life to it!) since ity
      is the second turn of folder names it does.
      I did not expected SUCH an improvement. Gap between 10D and 20D was smaller.
      40D is smoother and more silent than the 20, but not as quite as the 10D
      I've to say.
      400D is a small camera, unconfortable to the hand, with the best sensor
      of the category, but it feels like a plastic toy if compared to Nikon
      counterpart. It would be my choice, aex equo with the Sony, for a
      bargain camera. 18-55Canon is one of the crappiest lens I've seen.
      Good 2nd body or travel camera, but as I use a camera it would not
      survive more than 1 year.
      When I think to a PRO body I think about hits, moisture, shocks, rain,
      drops, sand, and drops again, dirt and seafoam -fog. I live in Venice.
      Camera comes with me. :-)
