Okay, so I only had it for a couple of hours...but it is a quantum-leap over the 20D. :hail:Fulfilled everything that I wanted from an update minus the full-frame. The ISO control and noise reduction is pretty sweet and the screen is HUGE. Will probably drain the battery faster though. I actually have to read the manual to figure everything out. There's way more custom functions to scroll through. 6.5 fps is freakin' crazy!!! Down-grade it to 6 fps with noise reduction. Those that have noticed my other threads know I absolutley hate the door-slamming shutter noise from the 20D. The new 40D shutter doesn't "click". It has a wierd "foomp" sound. Doesn't sound mechanical at all, but at least it is quieter. There is a shutter noise-reduction function to further reduce shutter noise, but than it will eat into the fps. More to come....I'm out to do some night shooting.
