So I went to a photo place around my house and they had the 50D in stock. Very similar to the 40D. MUCH nicer LCD. Also, IIRC, There are only 2 custom user settings rather than the 3 the 40D had. I might just go all out and go for the 50D. I was there when some guy traded in his 40D towards a 50D. I know it's no 5DMKII, but it's still one of Canon's new cameras.
