I am in the dilemma of buying either of the above cameras. My friend has a 40D and he's asking for $320 (body only) and his camera has 15K actuations on it. My brother insists that for the same money, I could easily find a XS with kit lens.
In some forums, people are saying that 40D had a bad shutter durability record. However, XS seems to me a lower end product of canon to me.
My dad promises me to give me a few of his canon lenses to start with if I have a camera body. But, I worry about the err99 and shutter problem.
Can anybody enlighten me in this regard and help me to make a decision.
