    hi all
    i have a 40d and iam thinking of upgrading to a 60d.
    i know all about the differences in specification etc but does it have a big leap in picture quality and iso quality
    i will be using the same lenses as i have used on the 40d 17-40L, 70-300L and15-85

    thanks in advance

    Picture quality is more a case of the quality of your lenses, use of tripod etc. Having said that when I had the same problem last year I opted to upgrade from the 40D to a 7D. Reading past posts I think the general view is to upgrade to a 5D mkII to work alongside your 40D.

    HI Dave, i use the 5d mkii at the moment and am thinking about getting a 40d second hand, could you tell me, in your opinion, how the 40d compliments the 5D mkii

    Hi Donald, I opted for the 7D in the end due to compatability of the lenses. The s lenses do not work on the full frame sensor.
    If you take wildlife then the extra length you get from the 40d crop sensor will assist a lot. Your 5D will have better image quality and has a higher ISO performance. In answer to your question they would compliment each other very well because of the 2 types of sensors giving more versatility. But picture quality-wise please refer to my original comment about lenses.

    Hope that helps,

    Dave

    Jingler, I don't think that would be a worthwhile upgrade. I think you'd not notice enough of a difference. However if you went for a 7D or 5D II then you would, especially in improved high ISO quality.

    Agreed, I would suggest the 7D for cropped or 5D mk2 for Fullframe.

    Well I have a 40d and don't see the 60d as much of a step forward - unless you do a lot of low light work and clearly the high ISO performance will be better. I'm waiting for the 5dMk3 or mk4 to come out - then the Mk 2 will be better priced second hand - and with a 24-70 2.8 to replaced my 17-55 2.8.
