Well I like the XTi much better, I have smaller hands and enjoy the XTi. I need better lenses so I either sell the XTi and get a ok lense or sell the 40d and get a better lense and keep the camera I actually like. I bought the 40d 2 months ago. I used for one photo shoot, 945 clicks. The lenses I am looking to buy are zoom lenses. Canon 70~200 f/2.8L IS Canon 70-300mm f/4.5-f/5.6 DO IS Canon 100~400 f/4.5-f/5.6L IS Any one of these will be fine. I'm located in Florida if anyone wants to do a local trade.
