I know that the review says they are the same camera... so why two different names?

Also, how do I know I am getting the latest generation of the camera (whether it be XTi or 400D) when I purchase one? I wouldn't want to inadvertantly purchase an older generation that's been sitting around on the store shelves or that some eBay'er is trying to get ride of cheaply.

Marketing. They are the same camera with different names for different parts of the world.

You can visit the Canon website to download the latest version of the firmware for those cameras.

Buy from a dealer not Ebay. If you want a little lower price and you do not mind a defective only return or restocking fee the best prices can be had by checking pricegrabber.com. Some reputable low price not BS dealers where they try to sell you parts that come in the box are as follows..

newegg.com, buydig.com, amazon.com etc.
