If you don't care about the video, I'd check out the 40D, too. You can find a refurbished EOS-40D body for around $699 now at vendors like adorama.com, with various packages including lenses offered, too

http://www.adorama.com/searchsite/de...294966337+1087

From what I can see from a number of reviews/tests, the 40D has slightly lower noise levels at equivalent ISO Speeds compared to the 50D (although it doesn't get the higher available settings), with better "per pixel" sharpness. A higher resolution sensor (as found in newer models like the 50D and T1i) will also place more demands on the lens quality needed for best results.

I was at Henry's today and one of the employees mentioned that he heard Canaon had an announcment to release in Sept? He wasn't sure what it was but heard something was coming???

Nevertheless, I picked up my 50D today and been shooting away and experimenting with it... So far so good...

Thanks for all your advice... I just hope that the 60D isn't the announcement come Sept....

Congrats on the new camera. Henry's has a trade in trade up program if I recall.
