So let me get this straight. You are bummed out with the XTi because it isn't "pro" enough???
Sarah, you are missing the point of photography.
Let me re-state that for you. I preferred the feel of the 40D. I know that my XTi is "pro" enough or whatever at this point. That was a poor choice of words on my part. I KNOW that the camera does NOT make the photographer.
Ah.. fair enough..
You are doing yourself a disservice by getting all worked up on your choice. Focus on glass and (if you want) photography classes. Either will benefit you far more than an upgrade from the XTi to 40D.
Just remember.... you were perfectly happy with the XTi until you looked into the 40D. If your perceived "need" to upgrade is the result, then you are still focusing on the wrong part of photography.
These are your words:
It really was all I could afford anyway.. (therefore the XTi is still a better choice)
That's one of the things I try to avoid doing. If I buy something I TRY not to look at or touch other things similar to it.
But I do know what you mean. I was able to compare the XTi side by side with the 40D. I actually held the 40D first and played with it a lil, then I went to the XTi and knew right away that I didn't want it. Chalk it up to a learning experience and as others have said, spend your money on some nice lenses so that when you do want to upgrade, you'll already have all that taken care of.
When I get to the point I think I have 'outgrown' this one, I will think about upgrading, but until then all I can do is learn and get better, right!!
I will be looking into getting some better lenses for now. :hugs:
