"Improvement over the 20D (finally)"4.5 starson by jka1946
Pros: Just what I was waiting for!
Cons: None that affect my type of shooting.
Summary: I've had an EOS 20D for sometime. When the 30D came out, I took a look at it. I was disappointed because the improvements weren't much over the 20D. I think Canon wasted their time with the introduction of the 30D.
When the 40D came out, it was what I was hoping for. I have an EOS XTi, but it's just to compact for my grip. I will keep the XTi as a back-up, but will probably put my 20D on eBay.
The things that sold me on the 40D was the size, compatibility with all my Canon EOS equipment, the 3" screen, higher megapixel rating, and the sensor cleaning system. I'm using the battery grip that I had on my 20D, so I didn't have to fork over another 200 bucks for a new one like I did when upgrading from a Digital Rebel to a Rebel XTi.
