    If you think that you will use 10-22mm often
    then go for the lens. If you use only when travel
    or less than 5 times per year then buy 40D.

    lens... can always get a better body next time. and for the same price... prob will get a better body. Unless you know there's a better lens that you're eyeing for :P

    Just my opinion.
    i'll get the lens if i was in ur position

    why change the body? is the body much better or there is a deal that you cannot resist? if the price is really unresistable then i will buy body or else lens for me..

    If I were you, I would go for lens. For body wise, save up a little longer more and wait for the price to drop or 2nd hand in B&S forum.

    The price of the body fall quite fast especially in this digital era.

    Well, this is just my view.
    Let's get rolling :)

    Suggest LENS......

    DSLR is a 'Lens' system..... not body.

    just buy the lens. but then if u decide to upgrade to 1 series, then dont go for the 10-22. sigma wide angle will do just fine.

    thanks for aLL the replies received,..after thinking and taking into consideration on the comments posted here, i will buy the Lens instead.

    is the sigma wide angle lens (10-20mm) good ? its slightly cheaper than the Canon 10-22mm one .

    Plse advise again.

    I have use both lens before, both lens are sharp. Sigma
    is a bit warmer and the aperture is 4-5.6 & you will hit higher
    f stop more quickly than canon one. Either one won't go wrong.

    I'm using the Sigma 10-20mm now..... no problem at all. And yes, much cheaper that the canon 10-22mm. U could find it at the 'Marketplace' section at around $660++. While the canon will sell at $980++...... I could live with a Sigma
