...and upgraded to a 40D. I got a good deal, actually. I sold my 350 for £175. Picked up a 40 with a battery grip, 2 batteries and a 4gb memory card for £200. It's spotless, too. Shutter count of 9,100. Previous owner used it for a wedding and a couple of holidays, that's it!

I love it! :D

After a very long and drawn out consideration I finally settled on a Canon 7D,reading reviews on various forums makes your head spin after a bit,doesn't it ? but this one seems to fit the bill,I never make snap decisions :))

The 40 is SUCH a step up from the 350!

I did some photos of a friend's 40th. Some random woman has told me they're better than her wedding photos! :-o

You be the judge:

Tried to explain that it's a good camera and a decent lens, I had nothing to do with it :D

Not sure what firmware your camera will ship wih if new, make sure you update if below version 2.0.x. This will add much improved performance.

Well I was vaguely aware that there was a firmware update but wasn't actually sure what it was all about :ymblushing: Anyway it came with firmware 2'03 installed and seems to be built like a brick !
