    I agree. It's one thing to compare the specs....but once you hold a 20D, 30D, 40D...and compare that to a Rebel...the difference is very clear.

    And I'd be the first to admit that I've never held a 20/30/40D for myself. I'm just reflecting on the fact that the gap between the two ranges just closed a little in my mind. Maybe when any of us actually gets to hold the 450D, it may close a little further given the changes that have been made to its handling.

    Maybe true...but the 40D is also a large jump ahead of the 30D...so while the new Rebel XSi looks much better than it's predecessor...the gap is still there.
    Actually, when the XTi came out...it was very close to the 30D (which was basically a revamped 20D). At that time, I think the XTi might have been the better buy...but the 40D reset the balance.
