What wil get you to upgrade to a 50D?
Aug 18, 2008

I don't know about others but I have really enjoyed using the 40D. I previously had a 30D and the improvements to the 40D were enough for me to upgrade. Things like larger LCD, better VF, better Ai-Servo performance and more accurate AF points.

I'm just wondering how Canon will improve the next camera, the 50D, to make me and other 40D users to upgrade.

More mega-pixels won't do it. But I don't think Canon will JUST offer more mega-pixels (a given with each successive camera). I don't think just having more mega-pixels will get many people to upgrade. So, it has to be more than that obviously. More AF points, yes. More AF points can also mean better Ai-Servo, yes. A new battery? That would suck big time given the number of 40D batteries I currently have. True or better weather-sealing? I'm doing fine with the 40D as it is. If it rains, I pull out the StormJacket. Can't see anything else Canon will offer in the new 50D class.

The key selling point for me to upgrade to the 50D wil be more AF points and better Ai-Servo performance. These are the important features for me.
