You don't "know" squat. How fast does the 50D AF acquire focus? How well does the center AF point perform with an f/1.4 wide open lens? How accurate and consistant within DOF is the AF? How quickly do the perimeter AF points achieve AF vs. the center AF point at f/2.8? How well does the 50D AF work for wedding shoots? You don't know any of this do you?

You've never seen a 50D let alone evaluated one. Oh that's right you don't even own a 40D but you're an expert on it's AF performance.
