    My XT is getting into the area 90k exposures and I really need to get a new body...

    New 40D or Mark II? Or other suggestions for this price point?

    Cancount on 1D bodies.

    $2350 back in late 06 is a good price for that many clicks. The average price at the time was $2400-2500 with 40k+ clicks.

    if anything I'm guessing less. thats a lot of images on that camera in not a lot of time, and anytime you put a non formated card in it screws up the count :hs:
