It is such a quiet thing to fall,
But far more terrible is to admit it
Hmm, i will most probably go for the EOS 40D, just waiting for the price to drop more (as 50D coming out soon).. I notice that there are 2 different kits to choose from that is the 18-55mm and the 17-85mm USM. Besides providing more zoom, what are the other features or difference between this 2 lens? Help, anyone?
Have to agree to most of the replies here that D90 and EOS40D are of different classes (one entry-level, the other mid-range).
If you are new to photography, the mid-range systems may be too "manual". If you have the $$$ or you are very sure/determined of your new hobby, by all means and go ahead to get one. If not, you may wanna get an entry-level system (D90, EOS450D, etc) to try out first and upgrade later (entry-level can become a backup for u).
I wouldnt want you to spend more $$$ and get a mid-range system, and end up having trouble learning how to use the dSLR.
Just my 2 cents worth of opinions. You make your own decision.
