    My XTi got stolen as some of you may remember.

    I'm looking at replacing it, and was toying with the idea of getting the next step up from an XTi for a DSLR, used of course.

    But i honestly don't know which one that would be.

    i'm assuming there is little to no diff in 30/40/50d other than age?

    Small differences, nothing major. Get what you can afford.

    Whats the difference between the 40D & 50D and is it worth the price difference?

    the dpreview review of the 50d lists all the diferences

    the main ones seem to be 15 mp, Digic IV, higher resolution lcd, and lens microadjustment

    More megapixels (meh,) allegedly better construction, supposed increased high ISO ability. The thing I like most about the 50D vs the 40D is the rear LCD. Once you get used to the new VGA LCDs you can't go back. I think the price difference is worth it if you have neither but it isn't worth upgrading to the 50D from the 40D.

    Get a used 40d. I went from XTi to 40d during the canon rebates. Pisses me off that I paid $1000 for a camera, and now it's like $650... Great camera though.
