Will you upgrade to 450D from 400D?
Feb 3, 2008

Hi all

If you are using EOS 400D with 17-55/2.8 IS and 70-200/4 IS as your only lenses, will you upgrade to 450D or wait for the successor of 5D?

As the increase to 12 MP is more a marketing ploy than real improvement (as least not in terms of noise level as 450D is still using the same APS-C sized CMOS senor) and the Live View may not be the cup of tea of everyone (particularly if one is shooting in RAW which allows more latitude for pp, why bother Live View), there are not too many significant differences between 400D and 450D. The DigicIII is a real improvement here. Is it worth the upgrade?

On the other hand, the 17-55 which is an EF-S lens will be rendered useless on a FF like 5D and its sucessor.

What is your thought?
