Hi

Do you think its worth upgrading my 400d to the new 40d?
Or should i invest the cash in a new lens and get the 40d when maybe the price comes down?

Thanks

Looking at some of your work, I'd go for the lens. The camera can wait no doubt Canon will have a 50 or 60 or 70d out by this time next year.
You seam to know what your doing with the camera so splash out on a new lens.

Lens definitely. If you haven't got it already I'd suggest buying the Canon 50mm 1.8 lens (only about 60) as you take a lot of portraits/studio work. The difference you'll see in sharpness between it and the kit lens will astound you, and show you what the camera is capable of. If you're primarily going to be doing this kind of photography I don't really see how upgrading to the 40d would be beneficial, when you can buy some nice glass with the money. If you were going to be shooting sports/wildlife then it may be a good move, but you'd still need other lenses....Hope this helps.
