    I would go with the 550D - it is three years newer in both sensor technology and the processing software. Whether 'better' means 'wow, there is such a difference I could not possibly ever use the 40D' is another matter.

    I agree with Mike, if I'm not mistaking the 550d uses the same processor as the 7d (DIGIC 4). My father-in-law has the 550d and the IQ is really good.

    For some reason, the older 550D has had better IQ reviews than later models. I'm not a Canon user but if I was to change brands, the 550D would be first on my list.

    Buy the latest you can afford, so the 550D is better without doubt.
