    It depends if you are going for casual photography or prosumer models, but I personally would go with a 20D.

    Its for general amatuer photography. I like taking shots of pretty much anything so it has to be a good all rounder.

    the 20D is a camera you can 'grow' into. Thats not to say you can't do that with a 400D but working in a camera shop I see a lot of 300D's 350D's upgraded to 20D's and 30D's

    I'd still say the 20D

    Well, I've just spotted that the 20D does 5fps where the 400D only does 3fps, I'm well into sportsbikes so that extra 2fps will come in handy :)

    Between that and the consistent 20D response I think its definitely going to be the 20D

    Cheers :D

    Funny this topic should come up, but I was eyeing the 400D and the 30D at the moment too.

    What's this forum's opinion of the 30D? Too close in spec to the 20D to warrant the slightly higher cost?

    EDIT:

    Actually, looks like there's more than enough on that topic already in the forum. Nevermind!
