Canon 1000D (vs 40D)

Re: Canon 1000D (vs 40D)

The 1000D is the replacement for the 400D, so higher up in the range is the 450D and then higher up still is the 40D. It's a bit confusing really

So out of the two, the 1000D or the 40D the 40D is going to be better spec'd

Compare features on the canon site:

Don't forget there is a 100 cashback on the 40D right now (Purchase any of the selected products listed between 01.03.2008 and 30.06.2008.) http://canonlensacc2008.onlinerebate...owtoclaim.aspx

Let us know your thoughts once you've had a read - bound to be people in a similar situation, or maybe some of our canonites will be able to add a bit more input.

Good luck!

Must say that with the cashback the 40D is very good value.. I was agonising over whether to get it or the D300 (nikon).

Re: Canon 1000D (vs 40D)

The 40d is an excellent camera, my ex partner is a pro photographer and she has just purchased one and loves it!

I'm considering it, but I want to see what the upgrade to the 5d (its gonna happen!) will be first.

If you have the funds, I would advise the 40d 110%.
