Its a silly question, but what is the main differences between the Canon 400D and the 40D?
I did a comparison check and heres all I can see:
40D has DIGIC III instead of DIGIC II
Live view mode on the 40D
Pentaprism view finder (what is this?)
and it has a alloy body.
so are these differences really worth the extra cash?
Any help would be great :o)

faster frame rate,
significantly longer life shutter and mirror mech
Improved AF sensors
Improved Handling (size of grip, dual wheel control
Three user set custom functions
More robust body
Improved micro lenses
Longer battery life.
Is it worth it? That I am afraid is your call.
For static images there may be very little diference in it. For sports use it could be a massive gulf. If you want to keep the camera for longer than two years, or take a lot of photo's in a year.
Personaly I would say yes, but it is mainly due to the 400D etc being made smaller than older version like the 300D, making the handling difficult for me.
Its worth it just for the spot metering and FPS count
let alone all the other stuff.

looks like a "0" to me
Ah but ade you say it as
I've just went from the 350D to the 40D and the first thing that strikes me as different apart from the physical size is the noise of the shutter!!
The 350D sounds virtually silent compared to the 40D.
The 40D is certainly loud although I've read reviews stating it is quieter than the 30D so heaven knows what that was like!!
Apart from that it is a lovely bit of gear. The quality of the pictures for me is night and day. I can see a big difference. As for the continuous drive, It's like a machine gun. It would be impossible not to get a lot more keepers using it. I particularly like the feature that doesn't rotate the picture in the camera in portrait mode but rotates it for the PC. Also pressing info gives 2 full screens of info which is clear and easy to read compared to the 350D's cramped info.

Thats because on the 350D the shutter is powered by a mute mouse.
