1.56x is the crop factor
I have a whopping $20 put aside for it.
If anyone has a 20, 30 or 40D they don't need, think of me... please.

I have a 30D - its my first DSLR , Ive resisted the digital move for a long time ! I know it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a new cameras but its doing the job in converting my brain over , its built like a tank and reminds me of some of the older film slrs - which cant be bad !
My best friend of fifty years gave me a 20D and the 17-85mm kit lens that came with it. Took me all of about two weeks to start wishing for Certain Features
Looked at what was available and the bang-for-buck ratios and decided on a 40D. Got an "E+" 40D from Adorama for $240, shipped. Almost looked like brand new.
It's serving me fine for most purposes, including macros, but I'm finding myself wanting better glass and more megapixels for wildlife photography (animals, birds). And I'd really like to have a minimum shutter speed option for aperture priority shots.
So I think my next upgrade will have to be a 7D Mk. II. But at ±$1,000 currently for a used one in excellent+ condition, that'll be a while, yet. In the meantime the 40D will suffice .
