Swapping from 50D to 450D - how did it go?

I love my 50D (upgraded from 40D) but am finding the weight is proving quite a problem (I quite elderly and am suffereing more and more from arthritics in hands and shoulders).

I tried to ignore it as I really enjoyed using both xxDs but feel the time may be coming when common sense has to play a part

So - my question:

Has anybody else made the transition from 50D to 450D and if so, how did it go?

(I did previously have the 350D and found that much easier to hand-hold / carry for extended times)

Informative comments would be much appreciated
