well .. asking this on behalf of my fren . As mentioned earlier in some other thread , he sort of regretted getting his 400d just a few days ago as another of my fren told him tat 450d would be out soon , packed with much more features and probably at the same price . Companied him to get the 400d plus 18-55is lens ( this lens is recommended by me after reading much abt it on this forum ) . He paid a total of $1320 for the stuffs . Now i felt quite guilty about it as i didnt know tat 450d is coming out soon and i didnt tell him . SO just wondering .. Now tat u guys know tat 450d is coming out soon , will u still buy 400d ?
