    What is it about the 400D that is limiting your photography, because it makes more sense to upgrade your lenses before upgrading your camera body.

    Which lenses do you currently have?

    I love my 50D, I upgraded from a xti and i'm glad I did. the improvement in image quality is very noticable. The only gripe I have is the awkward on/off switch, but that is no biggie.

    yeah, I love it (though mine is a 40D). I also have no problem with the on/off switch as I just leave mine on at pretty much all times (it has an auto-off setting).

    If you decide to buy one let me know, I have a factory refurbished one I could sell.

    Agreed, Lenses before bodies, kinda like liquor before beer...

    I have the 18-55 kit and the 50mm1.4 and i am thinking of getting a lense but i dont know wich one i should get..i saw someone with a 50D and it appears as if their images are way better with the kitlens (prime example) as it is with my 400D..

    Look into either the 24-70mm 2.8 or the 70-200mm 2.8, both are really nice lenses.

    I had one, for about 2 weeks. I had upgraded from a Sony DSC (stop me if you've heard this). It's a great camera, but I'm glad I traded it in for the 7D. I would highly recommend the 50D, but I can't really compare it to anything.
