Default CANON 40D or CANON 50D?


which is better/ what would you choose & WHY:

Canon 40D or the 50D???

- thanks, Samo

(Background: I like to take pictures of sports- i want a fast GOOD camera for an intermediate level... i learned on a nikon D80 i want an upgrade & something that is faster! im looking to spend around 1000 not going much over & I do not care about video.... i was looking at the nikon 5000 & D90 and the Canon T1i, 40D & 50D... seems like the 40D & 50D are the best ones...)

Suggestions, Comments & Concerns are all welcome!!

If you're looking at used bodies,maybe consider a Nikon D300 also... great AF system and a fast shooter...and built like a tank.
I would rule out the T1i and the D5000 and D90... their AF systems are not really suited to fast sports work.
Make sure if you're buying used the shutter count is not of galactic figures... and the seller is a trusted individual/source.
